    You would find more info searching google for it. Here's the web page for the MCNP group:

    Hey there,

    I'm not sure if you are still having problems with this, but I might have a bit of insight here. MCNP6 is a combination of the functionality 5 and x. I don't have the exact definition of what makes those unique off the top of my head though.

    The best place to get info on how to use mcnp is actually right from LANL. While you may be able to find the "primer" online, it is likely for the past software editions. The most recent one is export controlled, but fortunately get's loaded onto your computer with installation. Dig around your MCNP file. I guarantee it will be worth it.

    The exact location of the documentation file in your installation directory is MCNP_DOCS/MCNP6_REFS/la-cp-13-00634.pdf

    Hope this helps.
