window : RealPos (pass by value)
The window (steps-size) of proposals.
Default : 1
tune : Bool (pass by value)
Should we tune the move during burnin?
Default : TRUE
weight : RealPos (pass by value)
The weight how often on average this move will be used per iteration.
Default : 1
tuneTarget : Probability (pass by value)
The acceptance probability targeted by auto-tuning.
Default : 0.44
search_method : String (pass by value)
