I have made a small program to automatically convert hdf5 files in root ones.
This is placed in a personal (public) git repository:
It works reasonably well in linux. (I didn’t do much testing, but so far it has worked always well for my purposes.).
However I am struggling quite a lot to make it work in my Mac OS X (10.9.2) 64bit.
I have got root and hdf5 compiled using the c++ compiler provided by the Command Line Tools:
osxdaily.com/2014/02/12/install- … -mac-os-x/
Then, the compiler in my mac is the following:
[Behemoth] ~ $> g++ -v
Configured with: --prefix=/Library/Developer/CommandLineTools/usr --with-gxx-include-dir=/usr/include/c++/4.2.1
Apple LLVM version 5.1 (clang-503.0.38) (based on LLVM 3.4svn)
Thread model: posix
In order to setup the specific compilation flags for mac, the user can adapt a configuration script found in hdf2root/config/envMac.sh to point to the proper locations for root and hdf5.
Also in the configuration script for mac, the variable PLATFORM is set to macosx.
One this is set, the hdf2root/config/Makefile.common knows how to define the compilation, linking etc. flags according to the mac os x system.
However I have to be doing something wrong because despite of the program compiles it cannot be run:
[Behemoth] ~/plasma/hdf2root $> hdf2root
-bash: /Users/delaossa/plasma/hdf2root/bin/hdf2root: cannot execute binary file
Does anyone has a clue why this is happening?
I have to admit that I do not have very clear what is the proper way to build executables and libraries based on ROOT in the mac os.
