I have a request concerning the method:
Long64_t TProofChain::Process(TSelector *selector,Option_t *option, Long64_t nentries, Long64_t firstentry)
This methods is not implemented yet and I found that other people reported this problem in the past years (!)
Nevertheless the method is still not implemented, even if it would be very useful to initialize a TSelector before running it in PROOF.
The equivalent method TChain::Process(TSelector *selector …) IS implemented, making this functionality even more desirable to have code that is transparent to Local/PROOF running.
In my use case, I have to initialize a quite long number of variables of the class in the main before running on PROOF.
So far, the only workaround I found is to pass them with proof::AddInput(), which is a complicated solution to initialize variables of a class.
Can the TProofChain::Process(TSelector *selector,Option_t *option, Long64_t nentries, Long64_t firstentry) be implemented?
Is there any other solution/workaround that is simpler than passing by the proof Input TList?
