A pure Java implementation of the stdhep event format.

Note, this package does not attempt to provide an OO abstraction for the event data. It is stored and retrieved in a fashion very analogous to the original stdhep common block (although without fixed size limitations).

This is a deliberate choice since:

  1. It does not introduce a dependency between this package and any particular event representation.
  2. It gives maximum performance.

The package has been designed to allow an OO event description to be superimposed on it. See the package for an example of a mapping to/from the standard FreeHEP event representation.
