Dear all, 

I have a question about the ks.test() function, in order to perform a 
Kolmogorov-Smirnov test. 

I have a sample, and I fitted it to the 2-parameter gumbel distirbution using gum.fit
() fuction in the "ismev" package. I would like to perform a KS test if its 
distribution is gumble but I can't find useful information in ks.test help page. Can 
anyone tell me how to perform the ks test.

Thanks a lot for your help.
