ROOT Version: 6.24/02
I have a very similar problem to a ROOT user from many years ago: I’m processing data using pyROOT, and some of it is corrupted and calls to e.g.
GetListOfKeys() print errors like
Error R__unzip_header: error in header. Values: 2054
Error in <TBufferFile::ReadClassBuffer>: Could not find the StreamerInfo for version 10 of the class TF1, object skipped at offset 1194
Error in <TBufferFile::CheckByteCount>: object of class TF1 read too few bytes: 2 instead of 1173

In another thread, there is some hope that catching these errors from pyROOT would be available in a future ROOT version. Is there a way to catch these errors natively with pyROOT now?
Another solution posed in these threads is to use rootpy’s “dark magic”, but development of rootpy seems abandoned so a native pyROOT method would be preferable.
