Reading and Printing ALICE open data


I am somehow new to a ROOT and I have a question about Reading ALICE open data file.

So my question is: “Is it possible to read, display and write to a disk ALICE Open data (AliESDs.root file stored locally in a computer’s hard drive), using only ROOT, without using AliRoot?” Page in tutorial says “yes”, but when I tried to run alice_esd.C file as a macro, it gave me errors.

Thanks a lot for your concern!


the tutorial is relative to event display. The topic seems very ALICE specific: I propose that you ask the question in the appropriate ALICE fora.


Thanks a lot for your answer.

  • Is there any ALICE forum? - Because, I’ve tried to find one, but I couldn’t.


this is a question for an Alice colleague.
