BU8CDFName:
with r, l, and s denoting the shape, location, and scale parameters, respectively. The case where l = 0 and s = 1 is referred to as the standard Burr type 8 distribution.
<SUBSET/EXCEPT/FOR qualification> where <x> is a number, parameter, or variable; <y> is a variable or a parameter (depending on what <x> is) where the computed Burr type 8 cdf value is stored; <r> is a positive number, parameter, or variable that specifies the shape parameter; <loc> is a number, parameter, or variable that specifies the location parameter; <scale> is a positive number, parameter, or variable that specifies the scale parameter; and where the <SUBSET/EXCEPT/FOR qualification> is optional. If <loc> and <scale> are omitted, they default to 0 and 1, respectively.
