Pythia commands to print the decay table

From Steve Mrenna.
maxEventsToPrint = cms.untracked.int32(1),
pythiaPylistVerbosity = cms.untracked.int32(12), 
This will print out the full Pythia decay table. The techniparticles all have pdgIds that start with, e.g.,
3000000 + SM_particle_id,
technipi = 3000221,

CMS document preparation

I sent around the following instructions today to Fan Yang (and others) describing
how to edit CMS Analysis Notes and Physics Analysis Summaries
svn co -N svn+ssh://svn.cern.ch/reps/tdr2 myDir 
    # where myDir is a placeholder for a name of your choice
cd myDir
svn update utils
svn update -N notes
svn update notes/AN-11-151
eval `./notes/tdr runtime -csh` # for tcsh. use -sh for bash.
cd notes/AN-11-151/trunk   # (edit the template, then to build the document)
tdr --style=an b AN-11-151
You can commit your changes using the command
svn commit -m "commit message"
