This command creates a new chaff of dipoles. This command is only available when using the Chaff module.

Inline mode usage

rectangularChaff -h
Displays the help file that summarizes the parameters for this command.
rectangularChaff <center_x> <center_y> <center_z> <x_width> <y_depth> <z_height> <number_dipoles> <dipole_radius> <min_length> <max_length>
Creates a new rectangular-shaped (with the given center and lengths) dipole chaff, each one with a specified dipole radius and a length between the given limits.

Interactive mode usage:
