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|

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|

First off, let me apologize in advance in case this has already been addressed in this forum!
I was wondering if there exists an upper limit to the number of events that can be processed in a single run. Given that the function G4RunManager::BeamOn(G4int) takes a G4int as input, where G4int is typedef int (in source/global/management/include/G4Types.hh), does it then make sense that the number of events processed in a single run is limited by the size of the 'int' datatype on a user's system?
An 'int' datatype is 4 bytes on my system, so if G4int is defined as a signed integer, than the maximum value for a G4int on my system would be 2,147,483,647. Accordingly, when I try to run a simulation with any number of events larger than this, my simulation crashes.
I was wondering if a) I am understanding this problem correctly and b) if there is a workaround to this to allow, say, 5 billion events in a single run. I imagine it would not be a good idea to redefine G4int as something larger than int!
Thank you in advance for your help, Sam
