Class Description

 A TTree is a list of TBranches                                       //                                                                      
 A TBranch supports:                                                  
   - The list of TLeaf describing this branch.                        
   - The list of TBasket (branch buffers).                            
       See TBranch structure in TTree.

     TBranchClones in case the branch is an array of clone objects    

TBranch(): TNamed()
*-*-*-*-*-*Default constructor for Branch*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*
*-*        ===================================

TBranch(const char *name, void *address, const char *leaflist, Int_t basketsize, Int_t compress) :TNamed(name,leaflist)
*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*Create a Branch*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*
*-*                =====================

       * address is the address of the first item of a structure
         or the address of a pointer to an object (see example).
       * leaflist is the concatenation of all the variable names and types
         separated by a colon character :
         The variable name and the variable type are separated by a slash (/).
         The variable type may be 0,1 or 2 characters. If no type is given,
         the type of the variable is assumed to be the same as the previous
         variable. If the first variable does not have a type, it is assumed
         of type F by default. The list of currently supported types is given below:
            - C : a character string terminated by the 0 character
            - B : an 8 bit signed integer (Char_t)
            - b : an 8 bit unsigned integer (UChar_t)
            - S : a 16 bit signed integer (Short_t)
            - s : a 16 bit unsigned integer (UShort_t)
            - I : a 32 bit signed integer (Int_t)
            - i : a 32 bit unsigned integer (UInt_t)
            - F : a 32 bit floating point (Float_t)
            - D : a 64 bit floating point (Double_t)

         By default, a variable will be copied to the buffer with the number of
         bytes specified in the type descriptor character. However, if the type
         consists of 2 characters, the second character is an integer that
         specifies the number of bytes to be used when copying the variable
         to the output buffer. Example:
             X         ; variable X, type Float_t
             Y/I       : variable Y, type Int_t
             Y/I2      ; variable Y, type Int_t converted to a 16 bits integer

   See an example of a Branch definition in the TTree constructor.

   Note that in case the data type is an object, this branch can contain
   only this object.

    Note that this function is invoked by TTree::Branch


*-*-*-*-*-*Default destructor for a Branch*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*
*-*        ===============================

void Browse(TBrowser *b)
 Browser interface.

void DropBaskets()
   Loop on all branch baskets.  Drop all except readbasket

Int_t Fill()
*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*Loop on all leaves of this branch to fill Basket buffer*-*-*
*-*            =======================================================

TBasket* GetBasket(Int_t basketnumber)
*-*-*-*-*Return pointer to basket basketnumber in this Branch*-*-*-*-*-*
*-*      ====================================================

Seek_t GetBasketSeek(Int_t basketnumber)
*-*-*-*-*Return address of basket in the file*-*-*-*-*-*
*-*      ====================================

Int_t GetEntry(Int_t entry, Int_t getall)
*-*-*-*-*-*Read all leaves of entry and return total number of bytes*-*-*
*-*        =========================================================

Int_t GetEntryExport(Int_t entry, Int_t getall, TClonesArray *list, Int_t nentries)
*-*-*-*-*-*Read all leaves of entry and return total number of bytes*-*-*
*-* export buffers to real objects in the TClonesArray list.

TFile* GetFile(Int_t mode)
  Return pointer to the file where branch buffers reside

TLeaf* GetLeaf(const char *name)
*-*-*-*-*-*Return pointer to the 1st Leaf named name in thisBranch-*-*-*-*-*
*-*        =======================================================

Int_t GetRow(Int_t)
*-*-*-*-*Return all elements of one row unpacked in internal array fValues*-*
*-*      =================================================================

Bool_t IsAutoDelete()
*-*-*-*-*Return TRUE if an existing object in a TBranchObject must be deleted
*-*      ==================================================

Bool_t IsFolder()
*-*-*-*-*Return TRUE if more than one leaf, FALSE otherwise*-*
*-*      ==================================================

void Print(Option_t *)
*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*Print TBranch parameters*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*
*-*                    ========================

void ReadBasket(TBuffer &)
*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*Loop on all leaves of this branch to read Basket buffer*-*-*
*-*            =======================================================

void Reset(Option_t *)
*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*Reset a Branch*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*
*-*            ====================

    Existing buffers are deleted
    Entries, max and min are reset

void SetAddress(void *add)
*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*Set address of this branch*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*
*-*            ====================

void SetAutoDelete(Bool_t autodel)
*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*Set the AutoDelete bit
*-*            ====================
 this bit is used by TBranchObject::ReadBasket to decide if an object
 referenced by a TBranchObject must be deleted or not before reading
 a new entry
 if autodel is kTRUE, this existing object will be deleted, a new object
    created by the default constructor, then object->Streamer
 if autodel is kFALSE, the existing object is not deleted. Root assumes
    that the user is taking care of deleting any internal object or array
    This can be done in Streamer itself.

void SetCompressionLevel(Int_t level)
*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*Set the branch/subbranches compression level
*-*            ============================================

void SetFile(TFile *file)
  Set file where this branch writes/reads its buffers

void SetFile(const char *fname)
  Set file where this branch writes/reads its buffers
  By default the branch buffers reside in the file where the Tree was created.
  Branches of the same Tree may be on different files.

  The Root file will be connected only when necessary.
  If called by TBranch::Fill (via TBasket::WriteFile), the file
  will be created with the option "recreate".
  If called by TBranch::GetEntry (via TBranch::GetBasket), the file
  will be open in read mode.

  To open a file in "update" mode, use TBranch::SetFile(TFile *file).

void Streamer(TBuffer &b)
*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*Stream a class object*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*
*-*              =========================================
