## SF comments

- (1) Summary. A bit terse. Suggest “Returns a value of the probability density function or the cumulative distribution function for the exponential distribution.”.
- (2) Arguments, 1st paragraph. “is the value of the function” does not sound right.
- (3) Arguments, 2nd paragraph. Suggest change “the parameter value” to “the rate parameter of the exponential distribution”.
- (4) Arguments, 1st bullet point. Suggest delete “the” before “Lambda”.
- (5) Arguments, 2nd bullet point. Should “or equal to” be inserted after “less than”?
- (6) Arguments, general. Do we need to state that any non-numeric argument will give an error?
- (7) Additional details. Suggest change “If Cumulative is FALSE()” to “For the probability density function”. Also suggest change “If Cumulative is TRUE()” to “For the cumulative distribution function”.
- (8) Additional details. I would not bother with the integral and the equals sign for the cumulative distribution function (it’s preceded by the word “value”, not “equation”!).
- (9) Additional details. Something missing from “Here x is the Number and Lambda”?
- (10) Additional details. Suggest change “exponential functions” to “exponential distribution”.
- (11) Examples, 1st example. The word “the” should be inserted before “cumulative” and “exponential”.
- (12) Examples, 2nd example. The words “by default” appear to be redundant.
- (13) Examples, 3rd example. Change “value” to “values”. Should “or equal to” be inserted after “less than”?
- (14) Examples, general. No example given for probability distribution function.
