Use the standard package "Calculus`DiracDelta`"
Needs["Calculus`DiracDelta`"];
h[x_]:=UnitStep[x]
Plot[h[x], {x, -1, 3}];
f[x_]:=Integrate[h[t],{t,0,x}];
Plot[f[x], {x, -1, 3}];
g[x_]:=Integrate[f[t],{t,0,x}];
Plot[g[x], {x, -1, 3}];
m[x_]:=Integrate[g[t],{t,0,x}];
Plot[m[x], {x, -1, 3}];
p[x_]:=Integrate[m[t],{t,0,x}];
Plot[p[x], {x, -1, 3}];
