    Dear Thomas,

    I am afraid this wont work. FLUKA checks the present of the SOURCE card,
    and if it exists then it calls the source.f which is responsible for
    pushing the particles in the stack. The only think you can access are
    the parameters defined in the SOURCE and BEAM/BEAMPOS definition, but
    the sampling both for the spatial and the energy distribution you will
    have to provide it in the source.f

    Best Regards
