st: Selection of distribution

Dear Statalisters,

Are there any commands that, given a variable with empirical values,
will select the distribution which best fits those values?  For the
gamma distribution (for example) is there a program (user-written or
otherwise) that will tell me which parameters of a density function
will best fit the data?

Any help would be appreciated...
