This page needs to be updated with work completed in the 2018-2019 academic year.
-
 
+
-
# Copy contents of <code>/unix/pbt/aknoetze/ConversionScripts</code> to a new directory.
+
-
# Open <code>trc2txt.py</code> in a text editor.
+
-
## Change path to directory containing .trc data files by editing variable <code>dirpath</code>
+
-
## Change number of decimal points for each column by editing: <code>np.savetxt(..., fmt=‘...’,...)</code>
+
-
# Run <code>trc2txt.py</code>
+
-
 
+
-
Converted .txt files will be in the copied directory <code>NEWASCII</code>. These new files will possess the same file names as the original .txt files.

-
To concatenate the new data files together into one single file, while in the directory <code>NEWASCII</code>,type:

== Working with LeCroy Scope Trace Files in ROOT using the LeCroyData Class ==
+
-
 
+
-
The LeCroyData class is defined in <code>SimpleLeCroyRoutines.C</code>, which can be found at <code>/unix/pbt/users/dwalker/LeCroy</code>.
+
-
The class is intended for use in interactive ROOT sessions, but can be used in compiled ROOT applets. Its public methods and their use are summarised below:
