For example, TestEm1 into MyTest. Only TestEm1.cc needs to be copied to MyTest.cc and GNUmakefile. After you have a freedom to change your applications in any direction. You can look into examples/extended/eventgenerator/exgps and implement gps similary. If something will go wrong you always will be able to compare results with oreiginal TestEm1 and exgps, which left unchanged. VI
