I had a look at your code. You create a gPhysicsEventHeader array, fill it, and expect the
framework to write it to disk. But how can the framework "guess" that you want your private
global array being written? Unfortunately it cannot do magic!
Do do what you want, you have to write a "secondary" midas file yourself. I modified your
code to do that. First, I define the event storage like
BYTE gSecEvent[ MAX_EVENT_SIZE ];
EVENT_HEADER *gPhysicsEventHeader = (EVENT_HEADER *) gSecEvent;
WORD* gPhysicsEventData = ( WORD * )( gPhysicsEventHeader + 1 );
I use gSecEvent as a BYTE array, since it only contains one avent at a time, so this is more
appropriate. Then, in the BOR routine, I open a file:
sprintf(str, "sec%05d.mid", run_number);
sec_fh = open(str, O_CREAT | O_RDWR | O_BINARY, 0644);
and close it in the EOR routine
The event routine now manually fills events into the secondary file:
/* write event to secondary .mid file */
gPhysicsEventHeader->data_size = bk_size(gPhysicsEventData);
write(sec_fh, gPhysicsEventHeader, sizeof(EVENT_HEADER)+bk_size(gPhysicsEventData));
Note that this code is placed *inside* the for() loop over nItems, so for each detector you
create and event and write it.
That's all you need, the full file adccalib.c is attached. I tried to produce a sec01220.mid
file and was able to read it back with the mdump utility.
