Detailed Description

View in nbviewer Open in SWAN This example illustrates how to make a Tree from variables or arrays in a C struct - without a dictionary, by creating the branches for builtin types (int, float, double) and arrays explicitly.

See tree2a.C for the same example using a class with dictionary instead of a C-struct.

In this example, we are mapping a C struct to one of the Geant3 common blocks /gctrak/. In the real life, this common will be filled by Geant3 at each step and only the Tree Fill function should be called. The example emulates the Geant3 step routines.
