Re: [fluka-discuss]: Plotting spectra using USRCOLL

Dear Srinidhi,

you should have 5 *fort* files, all of which are in binary format. They
cannot be interpreted. You need to merge them and convert them to ASCII
format which is readable. It can be easily done via Flair.

In Flair, under "Run > Data", click on "Scan" which should automatically
select the scoring. Then, click on "Process". Two new files (*_sum.lis and
*_tab.lis) should be created, both of which are readable. While *_sum.lis
contains average/cumulative quantities, *_tab.lis contains 'plot-able'

To plot, add a USR-1D plot in Flair, and choose the *_tab.lis file.
