Description
This command generates normally distributed input parameters for Monte Carlo simulations. This is the default distribution. Parameter values will be generated following a normal distribution with the initial guess as the mean, and the standard deviation taken from command >>>> DEVIATION. Only values within the specified range will be accepted. If command >>>> LOGARITHM is also present, parameters follow a log-normal distribution.

Example
