Type: LArSoft module

Created on: August 7, 2017

This directory is intended to be part of a soup-to-nuts example of how to run a LArSoft program to perform an analysis task.

For directions on how to set up and compile this example, see the LArSoft wiki:

The example program in package AnalysisExample does the following:

  • reads a file of simulated and potentially partially reconstructed events;
  • creates a few example histograms;
  • creates two example n-tuples;
  • has a couple of brief examples of how to use associations.

There are comments (perhaps too many!) in every file to explain what everything does.

If you want to understand what you're supposed to learn from all this, read in this directory.

The files with a .md extension (including this one) are written in Markdown. If you'd like a pretty-printed version of these files, you can use pandoc; e.g.:

1 pandoc -s -S -o README.html
2 pandoc -s -S -o README.pdf
