The Athena Startup Kit (
ASK) integrates the
ATHENA framework, and the
software based on it, with the official releases and the various supporting
tools in order to provide an easier, more consistent, and more robust user
interface to Atlas offline software.
ASK operates completely in user-space: it performs only those tasks that
are otherwise left to the end-user by the "standard" Atlas tools.
There are two main aspects to
First, there is the "Startup" part, which gives the end-user a safe
playground to begin using Atlas software and to learn the supporting tools
within a working setup.
To further facilitate this, a graphical user interface is provided for the
most high-level tasks.
Second, there is the "Kit" part that allows for the use of
interface, utilities, and modules in batch scripts and test environments.
This document consists of three parts: an Atlas full-chain tutorial; the
ASK manual; and background information, including an extensive glossary.
The best way to use this text is by skimming quickly through the manual and
then start with a tutorial of your choice, referring back to the manual if
needed, while using the background information and glossary to delve deeper in
the subjects that you'll use on a daily basis.
