None How to obtain the geometrical step length and true step length

In the user document,

http://geant4.web.cern.ch/geant4/UserDocumentation/UsersGuides/ForApplicationDeveloper/html/ch05.html#sect.Track.AccInfo

There are some statements about them:

Geometrical step length (step length before the correction of multiple scattering) True step length (step length after the correction of multiple scattering)

However, in the G4Step class, I can only see one member function GetStepLength().

How can I know its return value is the geometrical step length or true step length?

Another question is, MSC physics process only affects the direction of the particle, but I could not understand how it works along one step. It is a continuous process along one step. It is easy to understand if it happens at post step point.

Thanks!

FG
