The main purpose of Marlin is to facilitate the modular development of reconstruction and analysis code based on LCIO. As a lot of different groups are involved it should be simple and straight forward to have distributed development of modules and combine existing modules as needed in a larger application. The base class for a Marlin module is called marlin::Processor. It defines a set of callbacks that the user can implement in their subclasses. A steering file mechanism allows to activate the needed processors. These are then called for every event using the LCEvent as container for input and output data in terms of LCCollections [taken from the ILCSoft page].

More information on Marlin is available on the Marlin home page.
