NAME

mn_fit - Interactive analysis package for fitting data and histograms  

SYNOPSIS

mn_fit [ options ] [ macrofile(s) ]  

DESCRIPTION

mn_fit is a program used to perform a wide variety of mathematical fits and analyses on data or histograms. It is based on the MINUIT package from CERN, and can be extended by use of the COMIS FORTRAN interpreter. mn_fit may be started from the command line by specifying one or more macro files to execute, or it may be started with no arguments for immediate user interaction. Note that if you specify a filename with the mn_fit command, the first line of the file should be blank, or else should specify the screen device.  

OPTIONS

The program recognizes other arguments at the command line, but only the following are relevant on a Linux system.

-h, -?
Show summary of options.
-db
Run the binary executable under gdb for debugging purposes.
-n host
Set the display to host:0.0 before starting up. Of course the remote host must have permitted X display access to the machine on which mn_fit is running. If you are running mn_fit over an SSH connection with X forwarding enabled, you will not need this potentially unsafe option.
-r
Run the binary executable with ROOT interface. As ROOT is not (yet) in Debian, this option will not work in the Debian package.
-u path/to/other/mn_fit
Instead of the binary executable in /usr/lib/mn-fit, start a different program, for instance a user-compiled version. The program executed will be path/to/other/mn_fit_x.exe
 

FILES

higz_windows.dat
Line 10 of this file (if it exists in the current directory) will be used to set the display size.
mn_logon.mnf
Commands will be read from this file in the current directory at startup.
~/.mn_fitrc
After running any mn_logon.mnf in the current directory, commands will then be read from this file at start-up.
 

SEE ALSO

The mn_fit manual is available in the mn-fit-doc package, and at the URL http://www-zeus.physik.uni-bonn.de/~brock/mn_fit_html/mn_fit.html . The program also has an extensive online help system.
