I found that reading the ArXiv version of that material was easier to understand:


zipfR package has an implementation of the incomplete beta function that might make some of the coding of the pdf and cdf more simple. 

Searching done with Graves' very useful utility package: 

findFn("incomplete beta function")

(I did't think that doing a search on "continuous Binomial" was likely to be helpful, but I tried it anyway and did not find any functions named "continuous binomial" in their help page titles.)
