The cpf function computes the conditional probability function of a competing event and can test equality of (only) two conditional probability curves. A proportional-odds model for the conditional probability function can be fitted using either cpfpo or pseudocpf. The former function uses the temporal process regression methodology while the latter uses the pseudo value technique.
