yesterday in ran in a problem when I tried to use the TMath.Abs(x) method in PyROOT.
delivers as result
It doesn’t matter if I run it on lxplus or on a local distribution the problem stays the same.
Is there an easy way to fix it (except for using pyhthon’s abs() method)?
Looks weird. Can you post a running small script, showing what you are doing exactly ?
Of course the C++ version is fine:
root  TMath::Abs(104125)
Yes, C++ is fine. For a minimal example, I’m doing the following:
>>> import ROOT
Yes, is an overload problem (the version for ‘short’ is selected). I have zero time to work on PyROOT atm. Please file a jira ticket (sft.its.cern.ch/jira/browse/ROOT) to keep track of this.
Aside: use Python’s builtin abs().
Done! Thanks for your response.
