acdtrace reads and processes an ACD file, prompting the user as necessary in exactly the same way as if the application itself was running. If it encounters an error it will terminate. This allows the behaviour of the command-line interface to be tested under different conditions, even if the application itself has not yet been written.
acdtrace works the same as acdc but reports on the processing of lines in an ACD file. It also also prints the results of evaluating any variables and operations in the ACD file.

OX NCBI_TaxID=31033; RN  RP NUCLEOTIDE SEQUENCE [GENOMIC DNA], AND TISSUE SPECIFICITY. RX MEDLINE=96275651; PubMed=8683572; DOI=10.1006/jmbi.1996.0347; RA Venkatesh B., Tay B.H., Elgar G., Brenner S.; RT "Isolation, characterization and evolution of nine pufferfish (Fugu RT rubripes) actin genes."; RL J. Mol. Biol. 259:655-665(1996). CC -!- FUNCTION: Actins are highly conserved proteins that are involved CC in various types of cell motility and are ubiquitously expressed CC in all eukaryotic cells. CC -!- SUBUNIT: Polymerization of globular actin (G-actin) leads to a CC structural filament (F-actin) in the form of a two-stranded helix. CC Each actin can bind to 4 others. CC -!- SUBCELLULAR LOCATION: Cytoplasm, cytoskeleton. CC -!- TISSUE SPECIFICITY: Widely distributed. Not expressed in skeletal CC muscle. CC -!- PTM: Oxidation of Met-44 by MICALs (MICAL1, MICAL2 or MICAL3) to CC form methionine sulfoxide promotes actin filament CC depolymerization. Methionine sulfoxide is produced CC stereospecifically, but it is not known whether the (S)-S-oxide or CC the (R)-S-oxide is produced (By similarity). CC -!- MISCELLANEOUS: In vertebrates 3 main groups of actin isoforms, CC alpha, beta and gamma have been identified. The alpha actins are CC found in muscle tissues and are a major constituent of the CC contractile apparatus. The beta and gamma actins coexist in most CC cell types as components of the cytoskeleton and as mediators of CC internal cell motility. CC -!- MISCELLANEOUS: There are three different beta-cytoplasmic actins CC in Fugu rubripes. CC -!- SIMILARITY: Belongs to the actin family.

The output file is empty, but any format available to the specified program can be used.
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:
acdtrace 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 along with any command-line options after the name of the utility application itself:
acdtrace ApplicationName Options
acdtrace will run the command line interface of any EMBOSS program by reading its ACD file and processing the command line and user responses in exactly the same way as if the true program itself were running. The application proper is not run; it is only the ACD file that is read. Any command-line options for the application being called can be specified. The user is prompted for any required parameter values not given on the command line and any input files are read. Output files can be specified in any available format however they will be empty (the application code is not called so there will be no output).
acdtrace 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 (see EMBOSS Users Manual for further information).
The output on screen can look a little confusing but is by far the best way to see how variables and operations work in your ACD file.
