Just include the ones you want to have in the array in the G120C4euler.list file

analyze the G4 mode2 data

To make mode2/mode1 data and analyze with GEBSort, you can do something like this: first download the GEBSort packages see https://wiki.anl.gov/wiki_gretina_at_anl/index.php?title=Tracking/off-line_sort_with_trackMain/GEBSort&oldid=1743 then

 make 
 make G4toMode2_US

that will make the G4toMode2_US program that can read the GEANT4 output files, pack the data and write it in mode2 format.

 rm GTDATA/g4_mode2.out
 ./G4toMode2_US \
    /media/120621a/user/gtdata/G4Co60_NSCL/g4.dat \
    GTDATA/g4_mode2.out \
    G4toMode2.chat > GTDATA/G4toMode2.log
  ls -lh GTDATA/g4_mode2.out

You can look at this mode2 data with GEBSort_nogeb

 rm GTDATA/test.root
 ./GEBSort_nogeb \
   -input disk GTDATA/g4_mode2.out RECREATE \
   -chat GEBSort.chat \
   -rootfile GTDATA/test.root > GTDATA/GEBSort.log

analyze the G4 mode1/mode2 data

you can track the data and look at both the mode1 and mode2 data as

  rm GTDATA/g4_mode2.out
 ./G4toMode2_US \
    /media/120621a/user/gtdata/G4Co60_NSCL/g4.dat \
    GTDATA/g4_mode2.out \
    G4toMode2.chat > GTDATA/G4toMode2.log
  ls -lh GTDATA/g4_mode2.out
  ./trackMain track.chat  GTDATA/g4_mode2.out  GTDATA/g4_mode1.out      > GTDATA/trackMain.log
  rm GTDATA/test.root
 ./GEBSort_nogeb \
   -input disk GTDATA/g4_mode1.out RECREATE \
   -chat GEBSort.chat \
   -rootfile GTDATA/test.root > GTDATA/GEBSort.log
