This page concerns the new version of libsbsdig which is currently being developped. The documentation for the old version of libsbsdig has been saved at:
8 1 Eric Fuchey
h2. Overview
10 41 Eric Fuchey
This page is maintained by the UConn group (Eric Fuchey + Andrew Puckett) and as of February 14, 2020 is specific to the *sbsdig_lw* branch of libsbsdig on github.
11 1 Eric Fuchey
h2. Purpose
14 52 Eric Fuchey
This page documents the libsbsdig code, which purpose is to process the Monte Carlo simulations of the SBS experiments produced by G4SBS [] to produce ADCs or TDCs.
15 37 Eric Fuchey
It is a standalone program which can run with a limited number of outputs (see section on usage).
16 52 Eric Fuchey
These produce files which can be analyzed with SBS-offline [].
17 1 Eric Fuchey
h2. Getting the code and building the program
h3. Prerequisites
22 54 Eric Fuchey
* Working ROOT [] installation. ROOT 6 is strongly recommended.
* Working G4SBS [] installation.
24 1 Eric Fuchey
h3. Downloading the repository
27 104 Eric Fuchey
h4. for simple users
29 1 Eric Fuchey
The code is hosted on a github repository owned by JLab. To clone via ssh (preferred method on JLab batch farm), do: 
30 5 Eric Fuchey
31 1 Eric Fuchey
bq. git clone
For this method to work, the ssh public key on the machine where you want to get the code must be added to your github account (see [ Guide] to generating ssh keys and adding to your account.)
35 51 Eric Fuchey
Cloning the repository defaults to the "master" branch. _As of August, 18th, 2020, the master branch still contains the old version of the code_.
36 72 Eric Fuchey
*Beware that the current version of libsbsdig is not on the "master" branch, but on the "sbsdig_lw".*
37 71 Eric Fuchey
38 104 Eric Fuchey
* Have an individual github account.
* On Fork the JeffersonLab libsbsdig to your account. Setup to “watch” Jlab libsbsdig
* git clone (This is ssh access). 
** This will be the “origin” remote repo;
** Create your own branch: git checkout –b NewBranchName
* git remote –add upstream
** This will be the “upstream” remote repo
* You can pull ( or fetch/merge) changes from the upstream (Jefferson Lab) repo.
* You can push commits in your branch to the origin (Personal Github) repo and then make pull requests.
48 71 Eric Fuchey
To obtain the new version of the code currently being developped on the "sbsdig_lw" branch, do:
49 36 Eric Fuchey
bq. git checkout sbsdig_lw
51 1 Eric Fuchey
h3. Building and installing the library
54 92 Eric Fuchey
Create a "build" directory that is parallel to the "libsbsdig" source directory (this is not strictly required, but the build directory must be separate from the "libsbsdig" directory in any case). 
55 2 Eric Fuchey
You also need to have setup an installation path e.g. /path/to/libsbsdig-install
56 93 Eric Fuchey
For instance, you can create it parallel to your libsbsdig directory (with the mkdir command), even though it is not strictly required
58 2 Eric Fuchey
*NB*: similarly to the build directory, the /path/to/libsbsdig-install directory shall '''not''' be the same as the source directory!
_The following instructions assume that "build" is parallel to "libsbsdig":_
60 9 Eric Fuchey
If successful, the libsbsdig library and several other files and folders will be created in the "build" and the "install" directory.
61 1 Eric Fuchey
62 2 Eric Fuchey
To build and install, the procedure needs to be completed. From scratch:
bq. mkdir build
cd build
cmake -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/path/to/libsbsdig-install ../libsbsdig
make install
68 1 Eric Fuchey
69 3 Eric Fuchey
Then, the following line should be added in the OS login configuration file to take advantage of this functionality:
70 91 Eric Fuchey
* source /path/to/libsbsdig-install/bin/ (or source /path/to/libsbsdig-install/bin/sbsdigenv.csh on the batch farm)

h2. How to use the digitization library
73 1 Eric Fuchey
74 37 Eric Fuchey
When sbsdig is installed in your machine, you can run the program using up to 4 arguments:
75 1 Eric Fuchey
76 98 Eric Fuchey
bq. sbsdig db_gmn_conf.dat gmn13.5_elastic_ex.txt 100000
77 33 Eric Fuchey
78 1 Eric Fuchey
These arguments have to come in this sequence, and while not all arguments are mandatory to provide, one cannot skip an argument unless they want to skip all following arguments.
79 78 Eric Fuchey
*The first argument is a database containing the list of detectors to digitize, and the parameters for the digitization. An example of such parameters is attached (db_gmn_conf.dat)
*The second argument is a list of "signal" files to digitize. It is mandatory to provide. An example is provided in the files attached.
81 105 Eric Fuchey
This file contains a list of input files for the program to run on. Hence, it has to contain g4sbs files that you have permission to modify. 
This file may also optionally contain the input for background superimposition. Input has to be of the form e.g. 
83 107 Eric Fuchey
84 106 Eric Fuchey
bq. gmn13.5_beambkgdhistos.root 80.0 1.0 0
85 107 Eric Fuchey
86 105 Eric Fuchey
with: 1st parameter name of the file where the histograms are stored; 2nd parameter: time window (in ns) on which the background has been integrated; 3rd parameter: fraction of background wrt nominal luminosity we want to add; 4th is a flag to switch on or off the digitization of the PMT detectors background.
*The third argument is the number of process. It has a default value of "-1" (=2^64-1) so it can be left unprovided.

The new digitization library will expand the TTree object from the input file to add ADC and TDC values.
146 55 Eric Fuchey
The input tree structure from G4SBS has already been described in detail in the G4SBS documentation [].
147 56 Eric Fuchey
The basic idea is that for each detector in the input tree, a set of branches will be added.
There are several types of detectors in G4SBS (GEM, CAL, RICH), but there is not always a defined extension for a G4SBS detector type.
(NB: I'm voluntarilly omitting ECAL, 
For the purpose of the digitization, it is more convenient to define the following types of detectors:
* GEM: GEM trackers. Corresponds unambiguously to GEM detector type in G4SBS. Read out by MPD (sampling ADC) modules.
* Cher: Cherenkov detectors (example: GRINCH). Corresponds unambiguously to RICH detector type in G4SBS. Read out by TDC modules (with optional ADCs).
* Scint: Scintillator timing detectors (example: Timing Hodoscope). Corresponds to CAL detector type in G4SBS. Read out by TDC modules (with optional ADCs).
* Cal: Calorimeter (example: BBPS, BBSH). Corresponds to CAL detector type in G4SBS. Read out by ADC modules.
* HCal: Hadron Calorimeter. Corresponds to CAL detector type in G4SBS. Read out by FADC (sampling ADC) modules with TDCs.
