Histogramming and analysis tools

Data collected during the experimental runs, which were recorded on tape on an event-by-event basis, were analyzed using several different histogramming and analysis packages. A TRIUMF program, MOLLI [198] with the FIOWA histogramming package [204], which was used on the TRIUMF Data Anaysis Vax cluster, was the main mode of the histogram collection. CERN packages PAW and HBOOK, featuring NTUPLE analysis, were used on DEC Alpha Unix servers, when correlations of many different variables were important. Graphic drawing and data manipulation including fitting were done with REPLAY [205] and PHYSICA [206] both TRIUMF programs, as well as PAW, on both VAX and UNIX (Alpha/OSF, Pentium/Linux) platforms.
