Hi Constantin,

   you should call in you TMySelector:

Abort("corrupted data", kAbortFile);

in case you have some problem with the data in the current file. Then the the processor that calls the selector, will load a new files and continue processing. In more severe cases you can call:

Abort("processing screwed up, aborting", kAbortProcess);

and in this case the processing will abort.

the chain/tree/proof processor uses the TSelector::GetAbort() method to decide what to do.

Hope this is clear.

Cheers, Fons.
