Nature of problem:
NLO QCD predictions for vector boson + jets and jet processes for generic observables.

Solution method:
Event files containing all information required to compute generic jet-based infrared-safe observables at fixed order and to recompute observables with different factorization and renormalization scales are provided. The library provides an interface to access the information in these files.

Running time:
The runtime scales linear with the file size.
