Mar 14, 2000:
The following release was announced March 14, 2000:
ZMtools v1.3, cvs rtag V01-03-00
HepTuple v1.6 cvs rtag V01-06-00
New Features in release:
Take advantage of ISOcxx portability
Remove contortitions that were there for old gcc.
These had been fouling up NT.
ZMutility v1.3.7 or higher
Exceptions v1.2.1 or higher
ISOcxx v1.1 or higher
- Cernlib library must be linked in for HBOOK
- histo v5_0_3a0 or higher for histoscope
- root v2_23_00 or higher for ROOT
There is a bug in HBOOK with regard to columns of
doubles in N-tuples:
These are NOT portable among
platforms with different endian-ness (SGI vs Intel/Dec).
This inconvenience will NOT be present with the
It is currently impractical to do static instantiation
of nTuple and histogram objects.
HBOOK Columwise Ntuples are restricted to 50 variables.
HBOOK itself does not handle columnwise Ntuples with
more than 50 variables in a block. A good workaround
is to have multiple blocks; each may have up to 50
- Histogram arrays web documentation.
- Ntuple for the Root filemanager documentation.
ErrorLogger v1.3; cvs rtag V01-03-00
ISOcxx beta release: v1.1; cvs rtag V01-01-00
New Features in release:
Vetted on SunOS 5 (Kai)
ISOcxx-aware ZOOM packages
Modification of various ZOOM packages to take
advantage of ISOcxx (thus making all of ZOOM
portable to all platforms where ISOcxx has
successfully been built). This is not a modiication
of ISOcxx itself, but acts as a validation that the
package has the correct capabilities.
ISOcxx obviates the need for
is now obsolescent and deprecated for any new
usage. The macro functionallity provided by
STLUtility is handled by
ISOcxx, so code depending
on STLUtility macros will not need
to change as long
as the include ISOcxx.h (or ZMenvironment.h, which
See documentation at
Note: For this product, a platform is "checked"
when the build - which discovers defects and prepares
files that aid client code by transparently coping
with those defects - has succeeded, and a test
sample client code successfully excercised the defect
If the package has been checked out for one instance
of a system/compiler/switches combination, then
installation on a similar platform should be trivial.
- KAI on IRIX 6 cdfsga
- KAI on linux cdfpca
- KAI on SunOS 5 fcdfsun1
- LIMITED NT with Microsoft C++ 6.0
Integration with SRT2, which is
necessary for smooth and transparent
use of ISOcxx, has not yet been done
NT not yet practical for client use.
Non-SRT usage mode not yet available.
- Checkout on egcs/gcc 2.95 under various systems
- Checkout on SGI native compiler
- Checkout on native compilers for other Unix
platforms with SRT2 available.
CLHEP v1.3.20, cvs rtag V01-03-20
Several new Random distributions:
Minor tweaks to avoid warnings:
- RandGaussQ and RandPoissonQ are quick versions
- RandMultiGauss now in agreed place in CLHEP
- Fix (and workarounds) for saveEngineStatus misbehavior
in RandGauss and when using bits in RandFlat
- Two Vector classes needed changing to avoid
(valid) warnings found by compilations with optimization
KAI on d0mino with D0 environment
KAI on cdfsga with CDF environment
KAI on Redhat 5.0 (cdfpca)
MSVC++ 5.0 under NT
Various platforms at CERN including
DEC, SUN, ...
HepAList is deprecated and will go away in a future
CLHEP release. The HepAList sort() function is disabled at
