I don't think this is possible, but should be easy enough with the RAN functions or call routines, and then PROC UNIVARIATE

We know that CDF('dist',quantile,parm-1,...,parm-k) that computes
probability in SAS is generalized form of PROBT, PROBNORM etc.
My query is there any such kind of generalized function for calculating
quantiles. I am aware of PROBIT(p), TINV(p,df<,nc>), GAMINV(p,a) etc.
which calculates quantiles for specific distributions. I want to have
generalized one which will be able to calculate quantiles for all
Thanks in advance.
