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.

To join the LArSoft mailing list, please follow these "instructions": using the list name LARSOFT.
