----------------------- Let us now consider a simple starting application. We want to calculate the charged pion fluence produced by a monochromatic proton beam of momentum 50 GeV/c impinging on a 5 cm thick beryllium target of simple shape: a small parallelepiped (20 cm x 20 cm x 5 cm). A further simplification will be made for the purpose of this example, neglecting all the surrounding environment and substituting it with ideal vacuum. We will guide the reader through the different parts of a possible input file suited for this application. The information which follows is meant to serve as a guide, but does not cover all the important points. It is recommended that for each option card selected, the user read carefully the relevant manual entry, and especially the explanatory notes.
