h1. LArSoftWiki

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": data analysis software and the "FMWK": framework for HEP experiments. The releases of the software are managed using an "SRT": distribution.

h1. Getting Access to FNAL Computing

In order to work on LArSoft development you will need to have access to the FNAL computing resources. The procedure for getting a FNAL account is described at

If you will be in residence at the lab, follow the instructions for an on-site visitor. If you will be based at your home institution, follow the instructions for an off-site visitor.
