I am running an unnamed script
both drPlots and etconePlots draws and saves histograms. The drPlot and etconePlot both have an internal counter that counts number of canvases openend, and saves the plots like this:
Problem is that I would like to print and close the canvases in drPlot.C before I open etconePlot.C.
Is there any way of doing this?
[quote]Problem is that I would like to print and close the canvases in drPlot.C before I open etconePlot.C. [/quote]I am not sure what you mean (it seems that just adding “delete c;” to your code snippet would do). What did you try and how did it fail?
The canvases open with names c1, c1_n2, c1_n3 etc. Each file drPlot and etconePlot wants to draw and save their respective canvases. But, as e.g. drPlot last canvas is called c1_n3, the first canvas in etconePlot will be c1_n4. I would like it to start again at c1, due to my automatic way of counting canvases and saving them, and I do not want the two files to be dependent on each other.
That is why I would like to finish with drPlot (drawing and saving) before I open etconePlot.
Is that clear?
[quote]due to my automatic way of counting canvases and saving them[/quote]Humm … a priori you could simply reset your counter at the start of both macros … or at the end … or you could use a different counter variable … or (depending what your code look like) you could make make both macro name instead of unnamed …
[quote]to finish with drPlot [/quote]I must be missing something essential , it would seem that this would already be the case … drPlot.C is fully executed before starting the next one …
Hmm, maybe it is not a problem after all…
I was getting confused since the canvases that open persist in calling themselves c1_n, but I understand now, that the name I give to the canvas is the one I can use to save them etc., so no problem!
