Hall A C++ Analyzer
The analyzer is an object-oriented, highly modular and extensible framework built on top of the ROOT framework from CERN. Classes are available for the most common analysis tasks involving data from the standard Hall A experimental equipment, in particular the HRS spectrometers and detectors. Standard physics calculations for single arm (e,e'), conincidence (e,e'X) and photoproduction reactions are available, as well as for auxiliary tasks such as energy loss corrections, vertex position calculations, etc.
A Software Development Kit (SDK) is included that provides users with a rapid development environment for building experiment-specific extension libraries. One can quickly implement new detectors, physics computation modules and even entire spectrometers.
Currently, major efforts are underway (1) to develop an improved analysis framework jointly with Hall C which will be based on the current Hall A software, and (2) to update the analyzer for the more demanding analysis requirements of 12 GeV experiments.
For more information, please see the Wiki.
The analyzer may be compiled with either make or SCons (recommended). The following are the main prerequisites for analyzer 1.6:
ROOT version 5 or higher. The latest version (currently 6.12/06) is strongly recommended. root-config must be in your PATH.
EVIO version 4.0 or higher. CODA must be set to point to the top of the installation location.
Compiling with scons
Ensure that you have SCons version is 2.1.0 or higher. Then simply do
Additional SCons features
To do the equivalent of "make clean", do
To compile with debug capabilities, do
Compiling with CMake (experimental)
Do the usual CMake setup
mkdir build cd build cmake -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=$HOME/local/analyzer .. make -jN install
$HOME/local/analyzer is an example installation destination;
modify as appropriate. You will need to add the
under the installation prefix to your environment:
export PATH=$HOME/local/analyzer/bin:$PATH export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$HOME/local/analyzer/lib:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH
On 64-bit Linux, the library directory is usually
lib64 instead of
Compiling with make (deprecated)
