Fits epidemic data to and generates stochastic profiles of a model with constant or timedependent behavior modification parameters. Two parameters, p and q, describe the effect of reduced contact rate of susceptible and infectious populations, respectively as described by Brauer (2011, ISSN:14712458). In the absence of behavior modification, p=q=1, we recover the familiar compartmental SusceptibleInfectiousRecovered (SIR) equations. 'DRAFT' supports both constant values for p and q and a timedependent form which smoothly changes p and q from their initial, preepidemic value of 1.0 to the user chosen values that are between 0 and 1. The start and transient time of behavior change are set by the user. 'DRAFT' can be used to compare forecasts of epidemic incidence with and without behavior modification. Additional parameters and data fitting methods are explained in BenNun et al (2019) <doi:10.1371/journal.pcbi.1007013>.
