[Gate-users] RE: Save random flag versus ROOT output

Thanks for your reply! I tried setting all those flags to 0, but it
doesn't make that big a difference in the size of the ROOT output file.

I have all the information I need in the ASCII output, and due to lack
of disk space I would like to exclude the ROOT output. But it doesn't
seem to be possible? 
(If I at the same time want the random seeds)

Thanks again,

You could also consider disabling some output for ROOT if you do not
them, e.g.
/gate/output/root/setRootHitFlag 0
/gate/output/root/setRootSinglesFlag 0
/gate/output/root/setRootNtupleFlag 0

No, why should they... Excel is just not made for such things.
