Idea Turn off overlap warning 

Forum: Geometry
Date: 27 Aug, 2009
From: Kareem Kazkaz <Kareem Kazkaz>

Hello there.

I would like to request a new feature for the next version of GEANT. I would like to be able to turn off the warning when I check for overlapping volumes. Right now, I can call G4PVPlacement::CheckOverlaps() and get a "true" return value, but there's no way to turn off the warning, even with verbosity set to 0. A simple "if( verbose )" flag would work great. I tried to attach an appropriately-modified file, but for some reason I'm not allowed to upload files. I'll post the file as a comment to this thread.

I am trying to determine the smallest bounding volume of any arbitrary shape, and as such I purposely create volumes that are too small. This results in many warning messages, which alarms other people who use the simulation.

I wasn't sure if this would be considered a bug, so I didn't want to submit it as a bug. If someone from the GEANT4 collaboration can comment, that'd be great.

Thanks a bunch!
