We create an empty data frame of 100 entries

In [1]:
ROOT::RDataFrame df(100);

We now fill it with random numbers

In [2]:
auto df_1 = df.Define("rnd", []() { return gRandom->Gaus(); });

And we write out the dataset on disk

In [3]:
df_1.Snapshot("randomNumbers", "df008_createDataSetFromScratch.root");
