ROOT Builder v1.31 February 26, 2009Posted by gordonwatts in ROOT, ROOT Builder.
There are only three weeks left to term! I can’t wait! And now for something a little bit different…
This weekend I took a few hours off and finished up some remaining work on a tool Axel and I created a year ago, ROOT Builder. This is a very small windows utility that is useful if you want to build ROOT from source on your computer.
When you hit the “Generate Project” button it will create a VS 2008, 2005, or 2003 project that you can then edit and access in the IDE. Unfortunately, this is still using the ROOT make file and not a native VS IDE project (which means the build is a bit slow). However, if you decide to build debug mode then this will allow you to hit “debug” and step into ROOT right away. Very handy for those odd I/O bugs that you can’t solve with Philippe’s help! ;-)
Let me know if you have any questions.
