None Distinguishing between final step

Hello everyone,

My geant application prints out the sum of the energy deposited by the incident particle in a certain volume and this part works fine. However, currently it prints out the sum of the energy deposited in the volume at every step and I really only care about what the total is at the end of the run. Is there a way (in to tell it to only print this out after the last step of the experiment is run?

Relevant Code:

void SteppingAction::UserSteppingAction(const G4Step* aStep) // was void { G4StepPoint* postPoint = aStep->GetPostStepPoint(); G4VPhysicalVolume* volume = postPoint->GetPhysicalVolume();

if (volume->GetName() != "tracker") return;

 G4double EdepStep = aStep->GetTotalEnergyDeposit();
 TotalEnergyDeposit += EdepStep;

 G4cout << "EnergyDeposited: " << TotalEnergyDeposit << G4endl;

So, I'd like the last G4cout statement to only occur if that step is the last one of the experiment.

Thanks greatly for your help!
