Abstract:This note describes a framework for Geant simulations of the STAR experiment, including the following packages:
egz: Zebra-format output of event generators
txgen: ASCII-format interface for user-generated events
nml: definition of detector geometry and namelist-format interface to Geant
gst: Core Geant program (GSTAR)
g2t: assembly of GSTAR subevents and translation to Monte Carlo TAS tables
