How to make ROOT to work with xroot://... TURLs

  • From the ROOT shell: run
root [] gPluginMgr->AddHandler("TFile", "^xroot:", "TXNetFile", "Netx", "TXNetFile(const char*,Option_t*,const char*,Int_t,Int_t,Bool_t)")
  • Via the file $HOME/.rootrc (or $ROOTSYS/etc/system.rootrc to activate it for all users): add the line
+Plugin.TFile:       ^xroot:   TXNetFile    Netx   "TXNetFile(const char*,Option_t*,const char*,Int_t,Int_t,Bool_t)"

Thanks to Gerri Ganis for providing the recipe.
