9.2} Scratch file

 The scratch file used by FLUKA is of little importance for most
 users, and actually is deleted automatically by the rfluka script at
 the end of a successful run. It is mentioned here only for the sake of

 The file, written on output unit LUNGEO (usually 16) is a simple echo
 of the Combinatorial Geometry input, in a different format. At input time,
 FLUKA stores temporarily the geometry data on this file and calculates the
 length of the various geometry arrays, which must include also additional
 information (e.g. the DNEAR value for each body). Then the data are retrieved
 and the final memory allocation takes place.
