Question Geant4-API reference? 

Keywords: Documentation API
Forum: Documentation and Examples
Date: 13 Dec, 2001
From: Andreas Zoglauer <>


I'm new to Geant4 and *trying* to write my own simulation program.

The examples are suffenciently documented (at least for an experienced C++ programmer) and the User Guide is helpful so I am making progress.

BUT, if one wants to write a program going beyond the novice examples one has to know the Geant4-API!

In the moment I'm digging through the source code, if I want to know, e.g. how to get the x-Position of a G4ThreeVector or the rotation matrix of a G4PhysicalVolume and so on.

Is there any type of documentation of the API? I do not expect something like Microsofts MFC documentation, but at least something similar to the ROOT Class and members reference guide ( - I think you know this...) even when it is without description of the classes and members.

If not, has anybody tested to generate a reference out of the source code with Doxygen ( or a similar documentation tool?

Thanks in advance
