Using MCPL

Using MCPL typically implies using pre-existing plugins or converters to either create or read a list of particles from MCPL files via a given simulation tool, such as Geant4, McStas, McXtrace or MCNP. Additionally, most users will find it beneficial to use the generic mcpltool command from the command line, in order to inspect or perform operations on files, and some users with advanced use-cases might write C or C++ code in order to manipulate MCPL files (for instance, to create new plugins or converters for their tools).

Many more details can be found in the MCPL paper (section 2) and in the MCPL paper (section 3).
