root2hdf5

Liberate your data from the monstrosity that is ROOT.

This tool is currently incomplete. Unfortunately the ROOT file format is so inextricably linked to C++ data structures and semantics that I doubt a flawless conversion is possible. Most scalar branch types are supported however, so for flat ntuples this tool might be useful.

Requirements

  • CMake (for building) 2.8.3+
  • Boost 1.50.0+
  • ROOT (any relatively recent version)
  • HDF5 1.8+
