In the initialization procedure the following subroutines are called.
The first three steps are also used for incident photons.
- Open the input files and create the `mcf.asc' file. A file for warning messages, `mcfgen.log',
is also created. This subroutine also reads basic data from the
`bdfls' file, including some physical constants and the
identities of the targets.
- Read the `mcfgen.input' file to get the
identity of the incident particle and the range of targets. This
subroutine also obtains the energy group structure and the flux as
a function of energy. Ordinarily, an energy-independent flux is
specified. For details on how to set up a special input file,
see Section 3.1.
- Get and store the date of the run for later
printing to `mcf.asc'. The format is `yymmdd', so that on
22 May 1995 the number 950522 is returned.
- Read the basic information about the `library' file. The format of this file is given in
- This subroutine computes the total flux over
each energy group g,
The reason for wanting these values is that the group averages
computed later are all weighted by the flux.
