Re: [fluka-discuss]: mysterious error from PHNCEV?

Dear Joshua,

since the reported crash looks very rare, we need your collaboration to
reproduce it. Thanks for sending us the input file, possible ancillary
files (user routines and - if any - respective input data files), and
especially the relevant random seed file (the one you find in the
temporary directory of the crashed run, i.e. fluka_###/ran*). Which
version do you use: g77 or gfortran?
I tend not to believe that this is symptomatic of a bigger problem, but
certainly deserves to be fixed.

Kind regards

I canąt seem to find PHNCEV discussed anywhere, nor this error message. Does anyone know what causes this? It is obviously very rare, but Iąd like to understand it, so I know it isnąt symptomatic of a bigger problem.
