Splitting LHEF Event files easily

It is sometimes easier to work with large event files (e.g. to use Decay), but its also sometimes easier to work with smaller samples (e.g. for control samples, to reduce the size of PYTHIA files, ...).

If you need to split LHEF files, please use this PERL script. Download the attachment and then type


chmod u+x

The syntax is

=./ perc out1.lhe.gz out2.lhe.gz in.lhe.gz=

where perc is the percentage (between 0 and 100) of events from in.lhe.gz to be saved as out1.lhe.gz. The rest is saved in out2.lhe.gz. All the information (number of events, unit weight, ...) is updated correctly in the banners and in the event XML blocks.
