=======================================================================
======                 Multiple Scattering Parameters          ========
=======================================================================
Type of msc step limit algorithm for e+-           2
Type of msc step limit algorithm for muons/hadrons 0
Msc lateral displacement for e+- enabled           1
Msc lateral displacement for muons and hadrons     1
Msc lateral displacement alg96 for e+-             1
Msc lateral displacement beyond geometry safety    0
Range factor for msc step limit for e+-            0.2
Range factor for msc step limit for muons/hadrons  0.2
Geometry factor for msc step limitation of e+-     1.5
Skin parameter for msc step limitation of e+-      3
Use Mott correction for e- scattering              1
Factor used for dynamic computation of angular 
  limit between single and multiple scattering     1
Fixed angular limit between single 
  and multiple scattering                          3.1416 rad
Type of nuclear form-factor                        1
Screening factor                                   1

such parameters, how to modify for proton therapy simulation? when I change range factor, GeomFactor, skin and etc., Such parameters only change the electron and positron. How to find the information and comments for proton simulation? please help me... thank you...
