Bayesian inference can be performed on random samples from the posterior distribution, even when it is known only in the proportional form. A sample from a candidate distribution can be reshaped, or the sample can be drawn from a Markov chain that has the posterior as its long-run distribution (MCMC). In this paper, the emphasis is on the computer implementation of these methods.
