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 "FMWK":https://cdcvs.fnal.gov/redmine/wiki/nusoft/FMWK framework for HEP experiments. The releases of the software are managed using an "SRT":http://runiicomputing.fnal.gov/cmgt/SoftRelTools-Manual/SoftRelTools-Manual-chunks/index.html distribution.
