PyROOT is a Python extension module that allows the user to interact with any ROOT class from the Python interpreter. This is done generically using the ROOT dictionary, therefore  there is no need to generate any Python wrapper code to include new ROOT classes. At the same time PyROOT offers the possibility to execute and evaluate any Python command or start a Python shell from the ROOT/CINT prompt.

Originally developed in the context of the LCG/SEAL project, has been now migrated to the ROOT project and is directly available from the ROOT project and part of their distribution. Refer to the HowTo page.


The best available documentation is available at while the new version of the  ROOT users guide being produced.
