Physics Analysis Workstation - a graphical analysis program

CERNLIB is a suite of data analysis tools and libraries created for use in physics experiments, but also with applications to other fields such as the biological sciences.

PAW is an interactive program providing interactive graphical presentation and statistical and mathematical analysis tools. It is designed to work on objects familiar to physicists such as histograms, event files (Ntuples), vectors, etc.

The program is linked statically against the CERN libraries on 64-bit architectures in order to function properly, as its design is not very 64-bit clean.

Package version:1:2.14.04.dfsg.2-6


Notes on paw

1) Graphics window corruption

If you experience corruption of the graphics window when other windows are
moved over top of it, turn on the BackingStore option of the X server.
In the "Screen" section of your /etc/X11/xorg.conf or /etc/X11/XF86Config-4
file (whichever one exists), you should have something like:

Section "Screen"
    Option "BackingStore"



paw (1:2.14.04.dfsg.2-6) unstable; urgency=low

  * Patch 302: minor fixes to paw script to allow it to properly call binaries
    in $CERNLIB/$CERN_LEVEL/bin if those environment variables are set.
  * Patch 804: fix Debian-specific bug that caused PAW to abort if the
    difference between two pointers used by COMIS was in the range given by
    INT_MAX < diff <= UINT_MAX.  Thanks to Giuseppe Ta

The very large file 2006_src.tar.gz was split up into individual modules,
from which non-free files were removed, of which the relevant ones have been
recompressed in the "upstream" directory of the paw source package.  S
