Particles produced and energies in the target Geant4

In summary, the user is looking for an example file in Geant4 that shows the number and energy of particles produced in a target when a proton or any particle is sent to it. The suggested approach is to contact the author of a paper on Geant4 beam model for boron neutron capture therapy, or to use the step function in the Geant4 forums to gather relevant information.

TL;DR Summary
Produced particles and energies in the target Geant4
Dear experts.Which example file in Geant4 can I use to find the particles and energies produced in the target?

What target? And what examples? The ones included with the toolkit have descriptions.

For example, when I send to B10 neutron, I want to find the number and energy of alpha particles produced in the target.

I want to do a bnct therapy example. Is there an example in geant4 about this? What I need is an example that shows the number and energy of new particles created in any target when I send a proton or any particle to any target.

I still don't know what you want. I suspect you look at the Geant example directories and read the source code and the notes to find what is closest.

One may wish to contact the author of this paper, Geant4 beam model for boron neutron capture therapy: investigation of neutron dose components

In your step function, you can interrogate the step object what process happened, and if it is of interest you can get further information. Please see this topic in Geant4 forums for further details
