McXtrace: MCPL_input Component

[ Identification | Description | Input parameters | Output parameters | Links ]

The MCPL_input Component

Source-like component that reads photon state parameters from an mcpl-file.

Identification

  • Author: Erik B Knudsen

  • Version: $Revision$

Description

Source-like component that reads photon state parameters from a binary mcpl-file.

MCPL is short for Monte Carlo Particle List, and is a new format for sharing events
between e.g. MCNP(X), Geant-4 and McXtrace .

When used with MPI, the --ncount given on the commandline is overwritten by 
#MPI nodes x #events in the file.

Input parameters

Parameters in boldface are required; the others are optional.

verbose Print debugging information for first 10 particles read. 1
Emin keV Lower energy bound. Particles found in the MCPL-file below the limit are skipped. 0
Emax keV Upper energy bound. Particles found in the MCPL-file above the limit are skipped. FLT_MAX
