Fit skewed-t distribution

Danir
Hi guys!

Could someone suggest any package to estimates parameters of skewed-t
distribution?
I didn't manage to find any.

Thanks!

My personal favorite for the skewed Student's-t distribution family is
the 'sn' package.

There is also the 'skewt' package, but as I recall this only has
p/d/q/r functions, and does not contain a 'fit' function to fit from
existing data.

There are a couple of packages that do multivariate skew-t models as
well.

Regards,

Brian
