This function acts as a skeleton for a truncated distribution defined by
model type, maximum value and model parameters. It is designed to be used
with the output from `get_dist()`

.

## Arguments

- n
Numeric vector, number of samples to take (or days for the probability density).

- dist
Logical, defaults to

`FALSE`

. Should the probability density be returned rather than a number of samples.- cum
Logical, defaults to

`TRUE`

. If`dist = TRUE`

should the returned distribution be cumulative.- model
Character string, defining the model to be used. Supported options are exponential ("exp"), gamma ("gamma"), and log normal ("lognormal")

- discrete
Logical, defaults to

`FALSE`

. Should the probability distribution be discretised. In this case each entry of the probability mass function corresponds to the 1-length interval ending at the entry, i.e. the probability mass function is a vector where the first entry corresponds to the integral over the (0,1] interval of the continuous distribution, the second entry corresponds to the (1,2] interval etc.- params
A list of parameters values (by name) required for each model. For the exponential model this is a rate parameter and for the gamma model this is alpha and beta.

- max_value
Numeric, the maximum value to allow. Defaults to 120. Samples outside of this range are resampled.
