## Testing truncated Normal sampling

### Description

Truncated Normal latents are necessary to transform a binary BART into a continuous BART.

### Usage

```
rtnorm(n, mean, sd, tau)
```

### Arguments

`n` |
Number of samples. |

`mean` |
Mean. |

`sd` |
Standard deviation. |

`tau` |
Truncation point. |

### Value

Returns `n`

truncated Normals, i.e., `N(mean, sd)I(tau, infinity)`

.
