Astro ROOT

NGC 2146
The documentation of AstroROOT consist of several user manuals and a reference guide of the container classes. This reference guide is build with the THtml tool of ROOT.
Changes since version 4.1.2: The environment variable WORK_ENV is replaced by ISDC_ENV.
The name of a TTree, converted from a FITS table is now composed of the extension name of the FTIS table and the extension number. (for example: name_4) With this change several TTrees in the same ROOT file, converted from FTIS table with identical extension names have different name. They are now directly accessible in the root interpreter from a ROOT file by their name. The file->get() method is not required any more.
