[ROOT] RE: ROOT macro cannot be found

Hi Stilianos,

Did you first try running your example macro independently of your sheel script?

The .L command can only be run at the prompt (or via gROOT->ProcessLine).

The content of a script needs to be proper C++ (+ a few CINT extensions).


PS. If you use 
     #!/bin/bash -x
at the start of your shell script, you'll be able to see what it really does.

Subject: ROOT macro cannot be found

        I am having a small problem running the following shell script that invokes ROOT: 
....    some preliminary stuff here 
exec $ROOTSYS/bin/root cat<<ROOTSCRIPT 
        .L myROOTmacro.C 
        myROOTmacro( ... some args ... ) 
        ROOT compain that it can't find the macro in the default path for ROOT macros. 
        What I don't understand is why ROOT look at this location. The macro resides in the same 
        directory that the shell script does, shouldn't be the first place to look there?
