//            EvtGen

// An example where decays are performed with EvtGen. See the
// documentation in Pythia8Plugins/EvtGen.h for further details on the
// EvtGenDecays class. In this example the decay B0 -> nu_e e+ D*-[->
// gamma D-[-> nu_ebar e- pi0]] is forced. The invariant mass spectrum
// of the final state electron and pion is then plotted.

// The syntax to run this example is:
//     ./main48   
//              

// This example has only been tested with EvtGen version 1.3.0. The
// EvtGen package is designed to use Pythia 8 for any decays that it
// cannot perform. For this to be possible, EvtGen must be linked
// against the Pythia 8 shared library. To build EvtGen 1.3.0 with
// Pythia 8.2 the "-llhapdfdummy" library requirement must be
// removed. Prior to running "./configure" for EvtGen this can be
// accomplished via:
//     sed -i "s/-llhapdfdummy//g" configure
// To modify how this example program is compiled (i.e to remove
// linking against the EvtGenExternal library) change the main48 rule
// in the Makefile of this directory.
