Checking Out a Package

After setting up Athena, go to the appropriate place to check out packages, your testarea.

>> cd $TestArea
>> pwd

As an example we will check out the UserAnalysis Package, but these instructions are general for any package. The UserAnalysis Package is intended to be a starting place for users to write their own algorithms.

First, you must find which package tag is appropriate for your version of Athena.

>> cmt show versions PhysicsAnalysis/AnalysisCommon/UserAnalysis
PhysicsAnalysis/AnalysisCommon/UserAnalysis UserAnalysis-00-10-12 /opt/usatlas/kit_rel/13.0.30/AtlasAnalysis/13.0.30
Alternatively, you can see a list of all the possible tags for the package by running:
>> get_tag PhysicsAnalysis/AnalysisCommon/UserAnalysis

To checkout the package with this tag do:

>> cmt co -r UserAnalysis-00-10-12 PhysicsAnalysis/AnalysisCommon/UserAnalysis

After checkout, go inside the package and see what's there.

>> cd PhysicsAnalysis/AnalysisCommon/UserAnalysis/
>> ls
cmt/  CVS/  doc/  python/  Root/  run/  share/  src/  UserAnalysis/
Every pacakge has the following directories:
  • cmt - where you configure and build the package
  • share - contains python job options
  • src - contains the C++ sources
  • PackageName - contains the C++ headers
  • run - directory for you to run jobs. a place to hold your job options and data.

To configure and make the package do

>> cd cmt
>> cmt config
>> source
>> gmake

This can be abbreviated using my bash function, makeit, explained in my notes on Using Athena at BNL.

>> cd cmt
>> makeit
