Flugg

FLUKA is a general purpose tool for calculations of particle transport and interactions with matter, similar to GEANT3 or Geant4. It is available for free to HEP, but under a highly restrictive license . The code is not open source and the bulk of the program comes pre-compiled (currently Linux 32-bit w/ gcc3+g77, and 64-bit w/ gcc4+gfortran). Each version of the library also comes with a "timebomb" that prevents the code from running after a pre-set date; MINOS/NOvA have asked for and received a patch file that pushes that date into the future (which is why we can still run 2008.3d), but it is a reoccurring issue.

FLUGG is a tool that add on to FLUKA to interface to Geant4 geometry.
