This code for validation and benchmarking of the MinimumBias dataset is set up at Research level, i.e. it requires university-student-level programming experience. Minimal acquaintance with Linux and the ROOT analysis package (https://root.cern.ch/) as well as a basic text editor is needed. Note that the code in this category is not meant to be a pedagogical example but is a validation tool.
The default output of the code below is a ROOT file Mu00val.root
Use this with 2010 MinimumBias primary dataset (see detailed instructions in readme.txt and code).
Only the list of validated runs are accepted:
If you do not have the CERN Virtual Machine for 2010 CMS data installed, follow the instructions in step 1 at How to install a CERN Virtual Machine. Then install and run the Demo (demo analyzer) program following the instructions at How to Test & Validate.
