McStas: Vitess_output

[ Identification | Description | Input parameters | Links ]

The Vitess_output Component

Write neutron state parameters to VITESS neutron filename.

Identification

  • Site:
  • Author: Kristian Nielsen
  • Origin: Risoe/ILL
  • Date: June 6, 2000

Description

Detector-like component writing neutron state parameters to a
VITESS neutron filename. Used to interface McStas components or
simulations into VITESS. Each neutron is 104 bytes.

Note that when standard output is used, as is the default, no
monitors or other components that produce terminal output must be
used, or the neutron output from this component will become
corrupted.

Example: Vitess_output(filename="MySource.vit", bufsize = 10000, progress = 1)

%BUGS
This component will NOT work with parallel execution (MPI).

Input parameters

Parameters in boldface are required; the others are optional.
