i'm interesting to use multivariate gamma distributed gamma data, in
 copula packages, you say that it can generate bivariate gamma
 distribution, i have try this and succes. my question, 
1. are the copula can be used for generating multivariate gamma
 distributed gamma data?
2. when i try to generating bivariate gamma, can i set the correlation?
 for knowing, i have try many combination of parameters, but the result
 is taht correlation value is about 0.5.

thankyou very much for your responses.
