I am writing a bash script to perform some analysis using the program ROOT. I want to run some initial command to load the result of the analysis, then continue using ROOT interactively.
The analysis part goes along well but the problem is that after
root is executes my initial command, it closes immediately. So far I have tried the EOF (here-file) construct to pass my initial command and I am a bit unfamiliar with shell scripting so I would like to get your opinions on how to keep
ROOT running after the execution of the script. That is I would like to see the ROOT prompt instead of the sytem prompt.
./runReader.py SummerStd 140PU_NM1 root -l SummerStd_140PU_NM1_his.root << EOF TBrowser a; EOF
The above code executes the analysis then runs
root; however, it immediately terminates and I have no time to inspect the TBrowser since I have the system prompt instead of the ROOT prompt. I would like control to stay at
root's command prompt after the script sends the
TBrowser command to the program, so I can enter additional commands by hand.
