Dear Giles,

As you already posted your question to the GEANT4 forum, someone else will give you yet another answer. There is no common view of which of the output formats (*.xml, *.root or *.hbook) is really the best one, and which of the plot rendering packages is the best tool. However, you can easily switch from one to another output format, please look into another example:


From your postings at GEANT4 forums I realized that you do not have a very strong programming background. Providing that it is true, (may be I'm wrong, tell me which of the programming languages your are familiar with...) I would suggest to use the native AIDA *.xml or root formats. Both of them are readable with JAS3:

With JAS3 you have a "mouse click" interface to plot histos.

If you are fluent in C++ or in OOP in general, using ROOT toolkit would be a natural solution, as you need to write macros to see your histos on your screen.

The hbk or hbook format is native for PAW, but it is rather obsolete.

Good luck with your GEANT4 studies !
