Dear ROOTers and Python3rs,
I am interested in ways to browse and manipulate .root files with Python in a Windows environment.
In my research group, we use ROOT 5.34/36 (v5-34-36@v5-34-36, Apr 05 2016, 10:25:45 on win32) on VS to process big data. The subsequent manipulation of single final plots become very demanding using c++ and such an obsolete (aka buggy) version of ROOT. Recently, some colleagues started to export our resulting plots into ASCII format to process them with Python 3.7. My goal would be to avoid this last step, browsing into a .root file exporting TH* plots to manipulate them with Py libraries.
Do you have any suggestion? I guess it should be possible without the need of PyROOT, am I right? In this thread there were already some suggestions, but I’d like to go deeper in the subject.
_ROOT Version: 5.34/36
_Platform: Windows 10
_Compiler: VScode / VS15
