Dear Norman please try the Flattop Distribution as described in
section 14.3 of the manual and make the rising and falling edges
small. I am sure that should get you going.

In the meantime, we are working on a more general way to specify distributions, i.e. 
completely rewriting the Distribution class. However this is slow due
to overcommitment of all folks involved.

Let me know if that helps

From reading the latest manual, it seems like GUNUNIFORM has been deprecated. So I'm wondering what is the best way to set up a uniform longitudinal distribution? We're trying to simulate a DC beam. Thank you!
