I have a sparse histogram with a very large number of bins (~1 million), and I am trying to output a bar chart from a TH1, via hist->Draw(“HIST B”);
This produces perfectly fine output when printing the canvas as a png.
When printing as a pdf, it also produces a visually good output, but with some issues.
The file size is vast, and the rendering time on every computer I have tested is quite long.
One can visually see the image slowly being rendered.
What seems to be happening is that a vector is used to draw a line along the horizontal axis from bin 1 to bin 2, then bin 2 to bin 3, and so on.
Is there a way to suppress the empty information from being added to the pdf? I see that ‘0’ options add for other draw options, but this does not seem to exist for ‘B’. Am I just being blind?
