Dear R-help community,

Does anybody know of a stats function in R that tells you which 
distribution best fits your data? I have tried look through the archives 
but have only found functions that tell you if it's normal or log etc. 
specifically - I am looking for a function that tells you (given a 
timeseries) what the distribution is.

Any help/advice will be greatly appreciated,

All the best,

Jenny Barnes
