SLitrani is an almost entirely new version of Litrani. The biggest change with respect to Litrani is that SLitrani is based on the TGeo geometry of ROOT. This has as a consequence that any setup which can be described by TGeo can be used in SLitrani. This is a fantastic increase of possibilities with respect to the old flat geometry used in Litrani. We have changed the name from Litrani to SLitrani in order that a user can have both versions on his computer, without conflict. If your setup is extremely simple, you may find that the old Litrani is simpler to use. Since in use for several years, it is also extremely well debugged. On the other hand, SLitrani is much more powerful and elegant due to TGeo. As Litrani, SLitrani is driven by CINT code. Clearly, the CINT macros driving Litrani are not compatible with the CINT macros driving SLitrani. The first thing you have to do before using SLitrani is to learn the TGeo geometry. Fortunately, the documentation provided by the ROOT team is excellent.
As Litrani, SLitrani is
written in C++
and based upon ROOT, so
that it is running on Windows and on Linux. SLitrani has been written by:
For those who are acquainted with the old Litrani, it is useful to read:
The simplest way to learn how to use SLitrani is the following:
