DELANA is the main DELPHI software for Raw data event processing concerning Real and Simulated Data. This includes data decoding, Pattern recognition, track reconstruction, Event tagging.

DELANA code needs a well kept (updated) DELPHI Detector description and Calibration Database to include detector status, calibration/Alignment constants and individual detector code, capable of understanding the database structures and contents correctly.

The programme is built similarly to DELSIM, with a main steering calling individual detector codes and uses DDAPP for the reconstruction.

The main output stream is (since 1991) Full-DST. Additional output streams are provided, as needed, for detector checking, luminosity (SAT), alignment, etc.

The I/O is managed via the UX-package to ensure correct data transmission.

To create the Full-DST output it calls PXDST.
This is usually activated on DELFARM to minimize processing steps and data volume.
