prepareHistFactory — create a working directory for the HistFactory tools


prepareHistFactory [dir_name]


prepareHistFactory is a simple script that prepares a working area (and creates the directory dir_name if specified). Within the directory dir_name, it creates a results/, data/, and config/ directory relative to the given path. It also copies the HistFactorySchema.dtd and example XML files into the config/ directory.  Additionally, it copies a root file into the data/ directory for use with the examples. Once this is done, one is ready to run the example hist2workspace input.xml or edit the XML files for a new project.
