Function

Generate an HTML table of parameters from an application ACD file

Description

acdtable is used to create the table of parameters, allowed values and defaults, used in the application documentation and to provide user help.

Usage

Here is a sample session with acdtable


% acdtable antigenic 
Qualifier Type Description Allowed values Default
Standard (Mandatory) qualifiers
[-sequence]
(Parameter 1)
seqall Protein sequence(s) filename and optional format, or reference (input USA) Readable sequence(s) Required
-minlen integer Minimum length of antigenic region Integer from 1 to 50 6
[-outfile]
(Parameter 2)
report Output report file name (default -rformat motif) <*>.antigenic
Additional (Optional) qualifiers
(none)
Advanced (Unprompted) qualifiers
(none)

Command line arguments

The first parameter is the name of the program to compile. All other command line parameters and qualifiers are defined for that program - see the documentation for the program of choice.

-version boolean Report version number and exit Boolean value Yes/No N

Input file format

The input is whatever the chosen application reads.

Output file format

The output file is empty, but any format available to the specified program can be used.

Data files

Acdtable will use any data files specified in the ACD file of the specified program, but will ignore any data files that are only used directly by the program's code.

EMBOSS data files are distributed with the application and stored in the standard EMBOSS data directory, which is defined by the EMBOSS environment variable EMBOSS_DATA.

To see the available EMBOSS data files, run:

% embossdata -showall

To fetch one of the data files (for example 'Exxx.dat') into your current directory for you to inspect or modify, run:


% embossdata -fetch -file Exxx.dat

Users can provide their own data files in their own directories. Project specific files can be put in the current directory, or for tidier directory listings in a subdirectory called ".embossdata". Files for all EMBOSS runs can be put in the user's home directory, or again in a subdirectory called ".embossdata".

The directories are searched in the following order:

Notes

acdtable does not have its own options, but takes a single parameter which is the name of the EMBOSS application that is being testsed. It is invoked by specifying the name of the application to be tested after the name of the utility application itself:

acdtable ApplicationName

Acceptable expected and default values can be generated automatically for most ACD datatypes. In other cases, the allowed values is defined with the valid: global attribute, and the default value by the expected: global attribute (see EMBOSS Developers Manual).
