Probability Distribution Plotter (ProbDistPlot) is a GIU tool which plots statistical distributions commonly used in reliability engineering. The program plots the probability distribution function (pdf), the cumulative distribution function (cdf) and the hazard rate of each distribution. The user can gain a better understanding of the affect the distribution parameters have on the distribution but interactively changing distribution parameters with slides.
ProbDistPlot is also able to create quick and easy figures by allowing multiple distributions to be plotted on the one figure with automatic legend annotations (updating parameter values), latex and tex labels, and export to excel charts, clipboard, jpg, pdf, .mat and the printer. Exporting to excel actually transfers the data into an excel spreadsheet and creates an organic Excel chart which can be further manipulated in Excel.
Yair M. Altman, altmany(at)gmail.com is acknowledged as the author of the function findobj.m which allowed the properties of the slider objects to be modified.
This software uses distributions from the book, O’Connor, A.N, Probability Distributions Used In Reliability Engineering, RIAC, 2011.

This software was very useful . thank you sir andrew for your kind gesture in helping me out to plot the dirichlet pdf and also for your timely reply to all my mails
Hi Hisham, Y values are dependant on X values. You can change the X values which are displayed by changing the axis limits. This can be done with the slider, or by typing them into the text edit boxes. If this isn't suitable and you need the exact Y answer (i.e not graphically) then you can run any of the functions directly from the folder "New Functions"
How can insert X and Y values
Dear Occa, your files are very helpful. Your prompt response to emails is impressive. Keep the great work you are already doing!
This is a great GUI! It helped me alot at my graduation paper. Thank you Mr. Occa O'Connor for this!
