# Distributionfile¶

The distributionfile is a simple python file which can contain any valid python code, but needs at least to provide a variable called parameters which is a list holding the various parameters for the parametric studies. The list must contain tuples with two entries, where the first entry is a string containing the name of that study and as second entry a python dict containing all parameters. It could for example look like:

#coding=utf-8

parameters = [
('study_A',{'a':3,'b':2}),
('study_B',{'a':1,'b':19})
]


In your commandfile you could acces these variables now through params['a'] or params['b'] respectively, assuming that you have specified the distributionfile correctly in the Profile File.
