// artg4tk: art based Geant 4 Toolkit
//
//=============================================================================

artg4tk is a modular completely generic Art+Geant4 framework which makes use and
extends functionality provided by the artg4, artg4example and CaTS projects.
Like CaTS it uses and extended version of gdml for the detector description and
provides a library of sensitive detectors that can be attached to a logical
volume. This sensitive detectors include calorimeter. tracker and photo-detector
types. Using gdml allows to create new detectors
or change an existing configuration without recompiling.
User actions (StackingAction, SteppingAction) are plugins that can
be selected and configured at runtime in the fhicl file.
The created geant “products” are stored in the Art event
artg4tk allows to select one of the reference physics list and
allows to extend the list with optical processes to allow for the creation
and tracing of optical photons.
