Weibull Distribution

In the help function it states the code used for weibull is z_weibull(stream, alpha, beta). If I wish to apply the following weibull information how would I use the above distribution function?

 

Location = 78

Shape = 0.6161

Scale = 32500

Minimum = 78

Maximum = 448000

alpha is the shape parameter and beta is the scale parameter. It's not clear what location should specify so I'd suggest the following call:

z_weibull(1,0.6161, 32500, 78, 448000)

The first parameter here is the random stream. You can choose a different number to get another independant random stream.
