SF Comments

(1) General. I am not convinced that general references to the “Gamma distribution” need to start with an uppercase letter.
(2) Summary. Regarding the note – please could you check that this is the approach we have taken with other statistical functions of this type? I do not recall see these prominent notes during earlier reviews; we ought to do things consistently.
(3) Returns. Change “the values of a Gamma distribution” to “a value of the probability density function or the cumulative distribution function for the Gamma distribution”.
(4) Arguments, Number. Should “less than zero” be deleted?
(5) Arguments, Alpha. Suggest change “alpha parameter” to “alpha (shape) parameter”.
(6) Arguments, Beta. Suggest change “beta parameter” to “beta (rate) parameter”.
(7) Additional details. Suggest change “If C is FALSE()” to “For the probability density function”. Also suggest change “If C is TRUE()” to “For the cumulative distribution function”.
(8) Additional details. Should “otherwise.” appear after each of the two equations?
(9) Additional details, final bullet. Insert “the” after “on”.
(10) Additional details. Final note is not 100% true and I would recommend deleting it (see email to discuss change to help file).
(11) Examples. The rerun value given for the 2nd example is incorrect.
(12) Related LibreOffice functions. I would not include GAMMA, GAMMALN or GAMMALN.PRECISE.
