I’ve reviewed the following:
Rebin this histogram
-case 1 xbins=0
if newname is not blank a new temporary histogram hnew is created.
else the current histogram is modified (default)
Rebin in the drop down menue is leading to segmentation faults for whatever I type. Is it bugged (5.20.00)?
I’d like to know what to enter into the three popup lines to yield a more finely binned histo than what the defaults display.
(and I think the old way worked better?)
You have to enter a value in ngroup, and not in xbins…
Please see the documentation of TH1::Rebin at http://root.cern.ch/root/html/TH1.html#TH1:Rebin
You can also rebin your histogram via the editor, from the canvas menu View->Editor, then click on the histogram and select the “Binning” tab.
Thanks for the response. I had read the url’s docs before posting. Trying again…my view->editor only displayed a “style” tab…until quite by accident I found that when I did a cntrl-click on the histogram the “binning” tab magically appeared and disappeared (toggle mode).
I think this feature needs to be less opaque and never seg-fault.
Thanks for your shove in the right direction.
