I’ve started using Proof and have been looking at the tutorials.
As an example, I wanted to modify the macro ProofSimple.C to open a local file (hardcoded for the sake of argument). So I added the command
TFile *f = new TFile(“test1.root”, “read”);
to the end of the function ProofSimple::SlaveBegin
When the macro is run in Proof (using runProof), I get the error message
Error in TFile::TFile: file test1.root does not exist
It seems like somewhere the search directory is being changed away from the local directory. Where is this done? How can I get it to point to the local directory. There are directory parameters set in getProof but I’m a bit confused by what is happening there.
I am using root 5.22/00 on RH 4
thanks in advance
