Plot the cumulative probability distribution for a set of variates x between limits a,b and compare with the theoretical cumulative distribution function using the Kuiper test.

cdf = handle for cumulative distribution function
varargin contains parameters for cdf
plot limits and cdf are optional inputs

The Kuiper test is similar to the Kolmogorov-Smirnov test, but the Kolmogorov-Smirnov test is most sensitive around the median and less sensitive at the tails of the distribution, whereas the Kuiper test is
equally sensitive to all values of x.
