    What are the different columns in treecoolfile given in the data folder? Can I use any other cooling function say for a different metallicity generated by Cloudy?

    The treecool file are equilibrium photoionization and photoheating rates, an up to date table is e.g. presented in https://arxiv.org/pdf/1801.04931.pdf.
    This only includes a very simple Hydrogen and Helium network, see https://arxiv.org/pdf/astro-ph/9509107.pdf.
    More sophisticated cooling routines need to be implemented seperately, a simple table is not enough.
