Detailed Description

Example displaying two histograms and their ratio.

This macro does not use the class TRatioPlot. For ROOT version >= 6.08 TRatioPlot should be used. See the other ratio plots examples in this folder.

void ratioplotOld( ) {
// Define two gaussian histograms. Note the X and Y title are defined
// at booking time using the convention "Hist_title ; X_title ; Y_title"

pad1->SetGridx(); // Vertical grid

// Do not draw the Y axis label on the upper plot and redraw a small
// axis instead, in order to avoid the first label (0) to be clipped.
