where <ia> is the type of interaction, currently only 'nf' for nuclear fragmentation. <projectile> and <fragment> are specified as nuclides. <expression> allows simple modification of the respective fragmentation cross section, but currently only a single factor (e.g. '*1.55') is supported.
The usual file name extension is .<ia>.xs. An example is here
