[R] GLM for Beta distribution

Hi R-help,

Is there such a thing as a function in R for fitting a GLM where the
response is distributed as a Beta distribution?

In my case, the response variable is a percentage ([0,1] and continuous).

The current glm() function in R doesn't include the Beta distribution.

Thank you for any help on this topic.
