I have examined http://www.phys.hawaii.edu/~kurtisn/software/IRSeval_GUI.tar.gz
There is no documentation. The code(s) contain little or no documentation.
I have managed to get it to compile and build executables using an SL4 flavor of linux,
a standard root installation, and a standard linux USB library.
It was linking to rather specific versions (5.18) of the Cern Root libraries, but
appears to be happy when pointed at generic versions. When I attempted to run it
using the run_scan.pl perl script it complained about missing *.root files
PED.root VLUT.root which I found on http://www.phys.hawaii.edu/~kurtisn/software/
however I did not find GenVCAL.root. The code crashes on the expected non-available
USB device. The code suggests there is an “offline” mode but it is unclear how to
run in this mode. I see lots of output plots as png and pdf files from some runs
but no input files to run against in an offline mode.

I think this is about as far as I can get with the
http://www.phys.hawaii.edu/~kurtisn/software/IRSeval_GUI.tar.gz
without interacting with author or a knowlegible user of the code.
