Dear Mcstas Developpers!

is there any way to get a list of the absolute positions of all the components from an .instr file?
Even better would be if the start and end points of each components could be listed.
For now I use a trivial but cumbersome method which consists in placing dummy detectors everywhere and parsing the output. There must be a better way...

Thanks in advance !
