14// //
15// TGenerator //
16// //
17// Is an base class, that defines the interface of ROOT to various //
18// event generators. Every event generator should inherit from //
19// TGenerator or its subclasses. //
20// //
21// Derived class can overload the member function GenerateEvent //
22// to do the actual event generation (e.g., call PYEVNT or similar). //
23// //
24// The derived class should overload the member function //
25// ImportParticles (both types) to read the internal storage of the //
26// generated event into either the internal TObjArray or the passed //
27// TClonesArray of TParticles. //
28// //
29// If the generator code stores event data in the /HEPEVT/ common block //
30// Then the default implementation of ImportParticles should suffice. //
31// The common block /HEPEVT/ is structed like //
32// //
33// /* C */ //
34// typedef struct { //
35// Int_t nevhep; //
36// Int_t nhep; //
37// Int_t isthep[4000]; //
38// Int_t idhep[4000]; //
39// Int_t jmohep[4000][2]; //
40// Int_t jdahep[4000][2]; //
41// Double_t phep[4000][5]; //
42// Double_t vhep[4000][4]; //
43// } HEPEVT_DEF; //
44// //
45// //
46// C Fortran //
47// COMMON/HEPEVT/NEVHEP,NHEP,ISTHEP(4000),IDHEP(4000), //
48// + JMOHEP(2,4000),JDAHEP(2,4000),PHEP(5,4000),VHEP(4,4000) //
49// INTEGER NEVHEP,NHEP,ISTHEP,IDHEP,JMOHEP,JDAHEP //
50// DOUBLE PRECISION PHEP,VHEP //
51// //
52// The generic member functions SetParameter and GetParameter can be //
53// overloaded to set and get parameters of the event generator. //
54// //
55// Note, if the derived class interfaces a (set of) Fortran common //
56// blocks (like TPythia, TVenus does), one better make the derived //
57// class a singleton. That is, something like //
58// //
59// class MyGenerator : public TGenerator //
60// { //
61// public: //
62// static MyGenerator* Instance() //
63// { //
64// if (!fgInstance) fgInstance = new MyGenerator; //
65// return fgInstance; //
66// } //
67// void GenerateEvent() { ... } //
68// void ImportParticles(TClonesArray* a, Option_t opt="") {...} //
69// Int_t ImportParticles(Option_t opt="") { ... } //
70// Int_t SetParameter(const char* name, Double_t val) { ... } //
71// Double_t GetParameter(const char* name) { ... } //
72// virtual ~MyGenerator() { ... } //
73// protected: //
74// MyGenerator() { ... } //
75// MyGenerator(const MyGenerator& o) { ... } //
76// MyGenerator& operator=(const MyGenerator& o) { ... } //
77// static MyGenerator* fgInstance; //
78// ClassDef(MyGenerator,0); //
79// }; //
80// //
81// Having multiple objects accessing the same common blocks is not //
82// safe. //
83// //
84// concrete TGenerator classes can be loaded in scripts and subseqent- //
85// ly used in compiled code: //
86// //
87// // MyRun.h //
88// class MyRun : public TObject //
89// { //
90// public: //
91// static MyRun* Instance() { ... } //
92// void SetGenerator(TGenerator* g) { fGenerator = g; } //
93// void Run(Int_t n, Option_t* option="") //
94// { //
95// TFile* file = TFile::Open("file.root","RECREATE"); //
96// TTree* tree = new TTree("T","T"); //
97// TClonesArray* p = new TClonesArray("TParticles"); //
98// tree->Branch("particles", &p); //
99// for (Int_t event = 0; event < n; event++) { //
100// fGenerator->GenerateEvent(); //
101// fGenerator->ImportParticles(p,option); //
102// tree->Fill(); //
103// } //
104// file->Write(); //
105// file->Close(); //
106// } //
107// ... //
108// protected: //
109// TGenerator* fGenerator; //
110// ClassDef(MyRun,0); //
111// }; //
112// //
113// // Config.C //
114// void Config() //
115// { //
116// MyRun* run = MyRun::Instance(); //
117// run->SetGenerator(MyGenerator::Instance()); //
118// } //
119// //
120// // main.cxx //
121// int //
122// main(int argc, char** argv) //
123// { //
124// TApplication app("", 0, 0); //
125// gSystem->ProcessLine(".x Config.C"); //
126// MyRun::Instance()->Run(10); //
127// return 0; //
128// } //
129// //
130// This is especially useful for example with TVirtualMC or similar. //
