This tool analyze four distributions for input data sets and obtain distribution fitting and determining goodness of fits. It also generate stair plot of CDF, obtain the Maximum Likelihood Estimates(MLE) of the distribution parameters, use Kolmogorov-Smirnov goodness of fit test to evaluate the appropriateness of the MLE fits, plot and compare the KS statistic and corresponding cutoff values, and check the p values alongside with it.
