Issue with starting at a certain event number
I am having an issue with the current development version of LArSoft (built with ART version 1_02_03). The flag to indicate which event to start at (-e or --estart) has been giving me back an error message. For example, attempting to start processing at event 8, I receive the error:
<> lar -e 8 -c job/standard_reco_uboone_engrecov.fcl -s standard_reco_uboone_engsave.root
OptionsHandler caught an std::exception calling art::BasicSourceOptionsHandler::doProcessOptions()
boost::bad_any_cast: failed conversion using boost::any_cast
Art has completed and will exit with status 7002.
I also should mention that using the --nskip flag gives back an identical error.
Using a stable version of LArSoft (built with ART version 1_00_11), I do not see the error and processing begins at the specified event.
Thanks for having a look at it.
