This book is a conversion of the classic tutorial series (available here).
This is a gitbook. You can comment on any line using the plus on the far right of that line (assuming you are reading the web version, not the PDF or ebook versions). Feel free to suggest edits. You can ask to become an editor, as well.
Using UC resources
uc:~ $ module load root
into your prompt once signed in to a UC computer. You can see the all available modules for your current compiler, such as ROOT 5 and CUDA, with:
uc:~ $ module avail
And you can save your loaded modules for later logins with
uc:~ $ module save
The data for the exercises is in
/data/tutorials on the UC systems. At some point, we are hoping to get permission to release some of this data for general access. The code is in the same location, or it can be obtained from GitHub. You can even use:
git clone https://github.com/henryiii/uc_root_tutorial.git
to download the script files to your current directory.
Not using UC resources
If you are using your own computer, you'll need to find the
thisroot.sh script that is inside the
bin directory wherever you have ROOT installed. Then you need to source that file in your current terminal session:
local:~ $ source /path/to/bin/thisroot.sh
2. If want to save keystrokes, you can use
module load. ↩
