I have a (physical, real) directory on my linux system which contains different root and other files. What I would like to do, in a cint-compatible script, is the following bash loop:
for i in
ls $dirname/myname*.root; do
do something with the file $i and the root classes in it
which requires root and cannot be done in bash
I could do it by redirecting the outstream, applying gSystem->Exec() and catching the output with a string etc, or piping the output to a temporary file, and reading that, or use boost/filesystem/operations.hpp, which seems to cause problems in cint, but this is all very ugly.
-> Is there an easier way using root classes (TDirectory or TFolder or such)? Or: How would you do this?
