DESCRIPTION

Herwig++ is a multi-purpose Monte-Carlo event generator for particle physics. See arXiv:0803.0883 for a detailed manual, or arXiv:1101.2599 for a more general description of the physics behind MC event generation.

One of the commands 'read' or 'run' is required:

read - reads an input file and creates a run file,
run - reads a run file and generates events.
-h, --help
Print help and exit
--full-help
Print help, including hidden options, and exit
-V, --version

Event generation options:

-N, --numevents=LONG
Number of events to generate.
-s, --seed=INT
The random number generator seed.
-t, --tag=TAG
A tag to append to the run name. (default=`')
-d, --debug=INT
Set the ThePEG debug level.
-D, --debug-fpe
Enable floating point exceptions. (default=off)
-q, --quiet
Disable event counter. (default=off)

Plugin library options:
