22.22 Example programs for 2D histograms

This program demonstrates two features of two-dimensional histograms. First a 10-by-10 two-dimensional histogram is created with x and y running from 0 to 1. Then a few sample points are added to the histogram, at (0.3,0.3) with a height of 1, at (0.8,0.1) with a height of 5 and at (0.7,0.9) with a height of 0.5. This histogram with three events is used to generate a random sample of 1000 simulated events, which are printed out.
