Output File Structure from BFC kumacs
Offline computing tutorial Maintained by Turner and Wenaus

One can write out xdf files from BFC kumacs using chain variables "evout" == event directories output or "dout" == dst directories output. The structure of output files from BFC kumacs is given below.

!!! NOTE !!!
--> the last record listed below is only in place IF you have "drsum" in the chain when running BFC.

To read these output files back into STAF, use a BFC kumac again. In this way, it will automatically check for you when you've gotten to the last run record and will skip out and process the finish at that point.

When reading back in these output files, you must tell BFC to execute one (1) more event than is really there, so it will actually get to the end run directory.
