Pbeta random values that follow a Eulerian Beta Distribution

superclass: Pattern

Pbeta(lo, hi, prob1, prob2, length)

lo, hi lower and upper boundary of values (default: 0.0 and 1.0)

prob1 The probability that a value will occur near lo. <1, probability of a value near lo

increases. =1, uniform dist. >1 will create a bounded Gaussian-like distribution.

prob2 The probability that a value will occur near hi. <1, probability of a value near lo

increases. =1, uniform dist. >1 will create a bounded Gaussian-like distribution.

length number of values produced  (default: inf)

// plot the values
