Detailed Description

A very high-level API for interacting with Herwig's different run modes.

It's not very convenient (yet), since you'll have to provide your own HerwigUI-derived object with some fairly obscure settings.

Much more fine-grained control is available through ThePEG::Repository.

Function Documentation

◆ build()

void Herwig::API::build ( const HerwigUI )

Herwig build mode.

Prepares a generator .run file and integration jobs, if desired. If an input file is not supplied through HerwigUI::inputfile() repository commands will be read from HerwigUI::inStream() instead.

◆ init()

void Herwig::API::init ( const HerwigUI )

Herwig init mode.

Creates a new default repository.

Usually, the default repo created during the Herwig installation is fine and external users will not need this mode.

◆ read()

void Herwig::API::read ( const HerwigUI )

Herwig read mode.

Prepares a generator .run file. If an input file is not supplied through HerwigUI::inputfile() repository commands will be read from HerwigUI::inStream() instead.
