Click on the Forum title, e.g. on the "Forums by Category" page, to read a sequence of postings to the Forum and its threads all in one page. If you are only interested in one thread or the thread following a specific posting, click the thread or the posting, which takes you to a smaller page, which contains only the part you are interested in and may be easier to navigate.
Messages are "chained" if there are only replies at the first level, i.e. 1/1.html, 1/1/1.html etc. In case of "chained" messages the message number is replaced by the icon and there is no indentation.
Inline: Display the subject line only or also the text of the posting(s); for the choice "All" the "Outline" choices are switched off.
|1||0||1||no text / full text of posting|
|2||1||All||text for level 1 only / text for All postings|
Outline: Choose the depth of the posting thread, successive toggle controls provide increasing detail.
|1||2||1||2 levels / 1 level (original posting)|
|2||3||2||3 levels / 2 levels|
|3||3||All||3 levels / all levels (all postings)|
The relevant method is in G4VSolid:
virtual G4double GetCubicVolume(); // Returns an estimation of the solid volume in internal units. // This method may be overloaded by derived classes to compute the // exact geometrical quantity for solids where this is possible, // or anyway to cache the computed value. // Note: the computed value is NOT cached.
which is used by ASCIITree mentioned by Joseph Perl in his earlier reply. ASCIITree also uses G4LogicalVolume::GetMass, as mentioned by Michel Maire, but this always takes account of the daughters.
