As of Jan 24, 2014, LArSoft has transitioned from svn / SRT to git / mrb / ups. These pages will be in flux for the next week or so until the documentation updates are completed.

The LArSoft software is designed to work for all planned and running liquid argon experiments at Fermilab. It is written in C++ and built on the "ROOT":http://root.cern.ch data analysis software, and the "art":https://cdcvs.fnal.gov/projects/art/wiki analysis framework supported by the Fermilab Scientific Computing Division for intensity frontier experiments.

* [[cet-is-public:GitTipsAndTricks|Git Tips and Tricks]] (Note that "git help" works, but "man git" and "git help <command>" does not on any of the gpvm machines. Nor do any of the "git <command> -h" commands.) For the purposes of LArSoft development, please please ignore the workflow advice as anything other than an example of how to use various git commands to do specific tasks.
