I was trying to use EvtGen.
After going to pgenerators/EvtGen and
./simpleEvtGen doesn't work

Do I have to compile it?
I tried to compile it in pgenerators/EvtGen dir
by the command ./configure
which shows:
ls: /lib/libpythia*.a: No such file or directory
ls: /lib/libphotos*.a: No such file or directory
ls: /lib/libpdf*.a: No such file or directory
Any path to be set?

Is there any wiki page where can I get
the instructions which work out of box?
The EvtGen Wiki psge somehow confused me.

Please let me know how to proceed.

best regards,

Hi Dipanwita,

I think your problem could be that probably you didn't set the CERN library.

export CERN_ROOT=....

(whereever your CERN library is).

However, there is now another (probably easier) way to run EvtGen,
namely the PndEvtGenDirect, developed by Björn Spruck (but undocumented yet).
I think so far we only have a small tutorial example existing. ial

under item (3).

PndEvtGenDirect *EvtGen = new PndEvtGenDirect("psi(2S)","PSI2S.DEC");

is how to use it directly in your simulation macro.
You need a few ASCII files (evt.pdl, DECAY.DEC and your own decay file, e.g. PSI2S.DEC in this case), but it is maybe easier than compiling

cheers, Soeren
