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.
