A large collection of software for handling event-by-event data. The gavsort programme itself is a script written in TCL/TK that
lauches a server programme called gsserver. You control what the sort does by changing the user_sortfile_xxx.c  file that is compiled
to produce gsserver. Features include:

Autogainmatching and Autodriftmatching
Handling of composite detectors.
Sorting into MySQL databases.
Polygonal gating.

If you want to use this stuff for the first time you will need help to get started. See me.
