CandTrackCam Package Information

The CandTrackCam package was written by John Marshall. This package was first being included in the Cedar release. The package is available for use starting in R1-24 code.

The settings are the same under both detectors and in data as well as MC. The only difference is in the setting of the algorithm for Cosmic instead of Beam running (see below).

For all scripts it is necessary to load the CandTrackCam library:
gSystem->Load("libCandTrackCam");

Reco path using SR Track Finder:
"SliceSRListModule::Reco "
"TrackSRListModule::Reco "
"FitTrackCamListModule::Reco "

Reco path modified for CandTrackCam:
"SliceSRListModule::Reco "
"TrackCamListModule::Reco "
"FitTrackCamListModule::Reco "

Settings for the Package
JobCModule& TrackCam = jc.Path("Reco").Mod("TrackCamListModule");
TrackCam.Set("TrackListAlgConfig=default");
TrackCam.Set("NameListIn=CandSliceList");
TrackCam.Set("NameListOut=CandTrackSRList");

If running over Cosmics change the TrackListAlgConfig to 'Cosmic' instead of 'default'

Additional Notes

The NameListOut setting is really important only so far as it matches the FitTrack package with which it is being used. Setting to CandTrackSRList is important for running with the SR Track Fitter. When using the Cambridge Track Fitter a CandTrackCamList is produced, however that package can be configured to read in an aribitrary NameList (see CandFitTrackCam's documentation for more details).
