Dummy Server

A dummy server has been created, in order to test the coupling without running Fluka. It fully replaces Fluka as far as the coupling capabilities are concerned, as it has all the calls needed to make the coupling operational, but it doesn't perform any tracking or particle-matter interaction: once a particle is received, it's immediately dumped in a file and then sent back to the tracker. As Fluka, the dummy server can handle as many entry points as the user wants. No input of configuration file is needed.

Particles are dumped in the file dummy.out, with the following format:

column quantity
1 turn
2 entry point
3 particle ID
4 ID of parent particle
5 statistical weight
6 horizontal position $x$ [cm]
7 vertical position $y$ [cm]
8 z pos $z$ [cm]

Keep in mind that Fluka units are used, as the conversion to and from Fluka units is done by the tracker, before sending / after receiving particles. This is because the coupling has been set up with different trackers, but only one Monte Carlo event generator.
