 In a previous thread (1509), we wrote :
  "  Hadr03 is designed to survey nuclear reactions.
  It assumes one interaction per event, and only one.
  There is a mechanism to build a string per nuclear channel. Also, nuclear interaction length is computed as the mean value of the unique step of the incident particle.
  If you allow secondary particles to travel and to become incident projectiles, all those things do not work or become wrong. "

 To develop a complete application, please start from Hadr06.

     Cheers,  Michel
