mn_fit - Interactive analysis package for fitting data and histograms
[ options ] [ macrofile(s) ]
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.
The program recognizes other arguments at the command line, but only the
following are relevant on a Linux system.
Show summary of options.
Run the binary executable under gdb for debugging purposes.
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.
Run the binary executable with ROOT interface. As ROOT is not (yet) in Debian,
this option will not work in the Debian package.
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
Line 10 of this file (if it exists in the current directory) will be used
to set the display size.
Commands will be read from this file in the current directory at startup.
After running any mn_logon.mnf in the current directory, commands will
then be read from this file at start-up.
