gxint(1) load and run an interactive GEANT application


gxint [options] file(s)


gxint is a script to load and run a GEANT application, which is usually in the form of Fortran source code. The desired routines are given in file(s).


-d driver
Specify a graphics driver. The available options on Linux are X11 and Motif (which should also work with lesstif). X11 is the default.
-g geant_version
Specify the version of GEANT to use. Current default is 3.21. This option only makes sense if you have installed a GEANT version other than 3.21 (i.e. one not packaged by Debian).
-h host
Useful with the -d X11 option only. Specifies the hostname used for the display; syntax is identical with that of $DISPLAY. If no hostname is specified, the value of $DISPLAY is used.
-l library
Specify additional libraries. This option may be repeated to add several libs.
-L path
Additional loader search path. Useful if additional libraries are specified with -l option. This option may be repeated with more than one pathname.
Do NOT use main program from cernlib area.
-o outputfile
Do not immediately run GEANT, but instead produce an executable file named outputfile. If "-o" is not given, the executable file will be created in $HOME, named GEANTpid (pid being the process ID of gxint), and run automatically.
-v version
Specify version of $CERN_LEVEL. This is meaningless unless you have installed an upstream version of CERNLIB (i.e. not packaged by Debian); see the file /usr/share/doc/cernlib-base/README.Debian.
-?, --help
Show a summary of options.
