We describe a code management and distribution system based on tools freely available for the UNIX systems. At the master site, version control is managed with CVS, which is a layer on top of RCS, and distribution is done via NFS mounted file systems. At remote sites, small modifications to CVS provide for interactive transactions with the CVS system at the… (More)
The problems of data analysis with hardware processors are reviewed and a description is given for a programmable processor. This processor, the 168/E, has been designed for use in the LASS multi-processor system; it has an execution speed comparable to that of the IBM 370/168 and uses the subset of IBM 370 instructions appropriate to the LASS analysis task.
Reason is a software package to allow one to do physics analysis with the look and feel of the Apple Macintosh. It was implemented on a NeXT computer which does not yet support the standard HEP packages for graphics and histogramming. This paper will review our experiences and the program.
As part of the research and development program in preparation for a possible B Factory at SLAC, a group has been studying various aspects of HEP computing. In particular, the group is investigating the use of UNIX for all computing, from data acquisition, through analysis, and word processing. A summary of some of the results of this study will be given,… (More)
pology hypotheses. The output of this stage is in the form of histograms and n-tuples. Finally the display and fit stage displays statistical data accumulated in the preceding stages in the form of histograms, scatter plots, etc. Fitting the data to known functions is also done in this stage. The remainder of this paper will consider what analysis tools are… (More)
Modern Large Scale Integration (LSI) microcircuits are meant to be programmed in order to control the function that they perform. In referencell], I have already discussed the basics of microprogramming and have studied in some detail two types of new microcircuits. In this course, I will explore the methods of developing software for these microcircuits.… (More)
HippoDraw is a NeXTstep application for viewing statistical data. It has several unique features which make viewing data distributions highly interactive. It also incorporates simple drawing tools. HippoDraw is written in Objective-C and uses the Hippoplotamus library package which handles the n-tuples and displays. Hippoplotamus is written in ANSI C. *
