Question Where to write my code 

Forum: User Requirements
Date: 13 Feb, 2011
From: Tim Hodson <Tim Hodson>

Greetings all,

I have progressed to the stage where I am teaching myself to write code from almost scratch (heavy assistance required from templates, examples, reference physics lists etc).

I am trying to write program that has a source of 100keV x-rays in the centre of a box filled with water. I have defined my detector and physics list (gammas and electrons defined as secondarys undergoing a few of the low energy processes).

I wrote these from scratch in visual C++ compiler and not in cygwin. I was going to compile in cygwin using "make". Is this the correct way of doing things? I am a little worried that geant4 files are .hh and .cc and .mac whereas when I start from the compiler in windows I can only get .cpp .h and can't define a .mac at all.

I am about to declare/define my Primary Generator action class. As I want an isotropic source of x-rays would it be best to use the GPS rather than particle gun? How/where do I write the macros for this? I realise there are unix editors like vi, but have been advised as someone who is new to unix (i taught myself just for this project) that they represent a major headache.

I'm sorry if these are tedious and obvious questions but all the GEANT4 resources I've found on the internet start at a much higher level than these basic considerations. Cheers, Tim
