cito 1.5.7

Generic particle-physics software trigger with flash ADCs.

Latest Version: 1.9.0

This code constitutes a framework for software triggering intended for particle and astroparticle physics experiments with pre-trigger data rates of 300 MB/s. The code scales to 300 MB/s by using celery over numerous computers, but the goal is to have a single thread be able to process a few MB/s.


To run cito:

$ pip install cito
$ cito process
$ cito file builder

See the usage section in the documentation for more information.
