ROOT is a data analysis framework broadly used in and outside of High Energy Physics (HEP). Since HEP software frameworks always strive for performance improvements, ROOT was extended with experimental support of runtime C++ Modules. C++ Modules are designed to improve the performance of C++ code parsing. C++ Modules offers a promising way to improve ROOT’s runtime performance by saving the C++ header parsing time which happens during ROOT runtime. This paper presents the results and challenges of integrating C++ Modules into ROOT.
