Description

In user interfaces, folks write 13, 13, 211, -211, for e.g. muons and pions. That's a bit confusing and error prone for user. Propose that we use instead "mu", "mu", "pi+", "pi-" strings. Don't care about internal representation, only user interface particularly input.

Thoughts?

Strikethrough?

Anyway, another option would be to make a pid_parser function... that can either parse integer or string depending on what it's given.

inverting the existing xboa dictionary worked fine in BeamMaker - would this not suffice?
