I was asked to smear an histogram with a gaussian smearing, but I don't understand what does it mean. Can you please explain me what is a gaussian smearing?

Thank you

Gaussian smearing is an approximate step function obtained by integration of a

Uhm... ok... but how can I implement it in a code? I have to multiply each bin of the histogram with this step function?
