70    
71    In scripts, where no package name is available, the category defaults to C<main>.
72    
73  To set up tracing, you call the C</Setup> method. The method takes as input a trace level, a list  =head3 Custom Tracing
74  of category names, and a set of options. The trace level and list of category names are  
75    Many programs have customized tracing configured using the L</TSetup> method. This is no longer

85    sets the trace level to 3, activates the C<errors>, C<Sprout>, and C<ERDB> categories, and
86    specifies that messages should be sent to the standard output.
87    
88    To turn on tracing for ALL categories, use an asterisk. The call below sets every category to
89    level 3 and writes the output to the standard error output. This sort of thing might be
90    useful in a CGI environment.

115    
116    =head3 Trace Levels
117    
118    There is no hard and fast rule on how to use trace levels. The following is therefore only
119    a suggestion.
120    
121    =over 4
122    
123    =item Error 0
124    
125    Message indicates an error that may lead to incorrect results or that has stopped the
126    application entirely.
127    
128    =item Warning 1
129    
130    Message indicates something that is unexpected but that probably did not interfere
131    with program execution.
132    
133    =item Notice 2
134    
135    Message indicates the beginning or end of a major task.
136    
137    =item Information 3
138    
139    Message indicates a subtask. In the FIG system, a subtask generally relates to a single
140    genome. This would be a big loop that is not expected to execute more than 500 times or so.
141    
142    =item Detail 4
143    
144    Message indicates a low-level loop iteration.
145    
146    =back
147    
148    The format of trace messages is important because some utilities analyze trace files.
149    There are three fields-- the time stamp, the category name, and the text.
150    The time stamp is between square brackets and the category name between angle brackets.
151    After the category name there is a colon (C<:>) followed by the message text.
152    If the square brackets or angle brackets are missing, then the trace management
153    utilities assume that they are encountering a set of pre-formatted lines.
154    
155    Note, however, that this formatting is done automatically by the tracing functions. You
156    only need to know about it if you want to parse a trace file.
157    
158    =head3 Emergency Tracing
159    
160    Sometimes, you need a way for tracing to happen automatically without putting parameters
161    in a form or on the command line. Emergency tracing does this. You invoke emergency tracing
162    from the debug form, which is accessed from I<MySeedInstance>C</FIG/Html/SetPassword.html>.
163    Emergency tracing requires you specify a tracing key. For command-line tools, the key is
164    taken from the C<TRACING> environment variable. For web services, the key is taken from
165    a cookie. Either way, the key tells the tracing facility who you are, so that you control
166    the tracing in your environment without stepping on other users.
167    
168    The key can be anything you want. If you don't have a key, the C<SetPassword> page will
169    generate one for you.
170    
171    You can activate and de-activate emergency tracing from the debugging control panel, as
172    well as display the trace file itself.
173    
174    To enable emergency tracing in your code, call
175    
176        ETracing($cgi)
177    
178    from a web script and
179    
180        ETracing()
181    
182    from a command-line script.
183    
184    The web script will look for the tracing key in the cookies, and the command-line
185    script will look for it in the C<TRACING> environment variable. If you are
186    using the L</StandardScript> or L</StandardSetup> methods, emergency tracing
187    will be configured automatically.
188    
189    NOTE: to configure emergency tracing from the command line instead of the Debugging
190    Control Panel (see below), use the C<trace.pl> script.
191    
192    =head3 Debugging Control Panel
193    
194    The debugging control panel provides several tools to assist in development of
195    SEED and Sprout software. You access the debugging control panel from the URL
196    C</FIG/Html/SetPassword.html> in whichever seed instance you're using. (So,
197    for example, the panel access point for the development NMPDR system is
198    C<http://web-1.nmpdr.org/next/FIG/Html/SetPassword.html>. Contact Bruce to
199    find out what the password is. From this page, you can also specify a tracing
200    key. If you don't specify a key, one will be generated for you.
201    
202    =head4 Emergency Tracing Form
203    
204    At the bottom of the debugging control panel is a form that allows you to
205    specify a trace level and tracing categories. Special and common categories
206    are listed with check boxes. You can hold your mouse over a check box to see
207    what its category does. In general, however, a category name is the same as
208    the name of the package in which the trace message occurs.
209    
210    Additional categories can be entered in an input box, delimited by spaces or commas.
211    
212    The B<Activate> button turns on Emergency tracing at the level you specify with the
213    specified categories active. The B<Terminate> button turns tracing off. The
214    B<Show File> button displays the current contents of the trace file. The tracing
215    form at the bottom of the control panel is designed for emergency tracing, so it
216    will only affect programs that call L</ETracing>, L</StandardScript>,
217    or L</StandardSetup>.
218    
219    =head4 Script Form
220    
221    The top form of the debugging control panel allows you to enter a tiny script and
222    have the output generated in a formatted table. Certain object variables are
223    predefined in the script, including a FIG object (C<$fig>), a CGI object (C<$cgi>),
224    and-- if Sprout is active-- Sprout (C<$sprout>) and SFXlate (C<$sfx>) objects.
225    
226    The last line of the script must be a scalar, but it can be a reference to a hash,
227    a list, a list of lists, and various other combinations. If you select the appropriate
228    data type in the dropdown box, the output will be formatted accordingly. The form
229    also has controls for specifying tracing. These controls override any emergency
230    tracing in effect.
231    
232    =head4 Database Query Forms
233    
234    The forms between the script form and the emergency tracing form allow you to
235    make queries against the database. The FIG query form allows simple queries against
236    a single FIG table. The Sprout query form uses the B<GetAll> method to do a
237    multi-table query against the Sprout database. B<GetAll> is located in the B<ERDB>
238    package, and it takes five parameters.
239    
240        GetAll(\@objectNames, $filterClause, \@parameters, \@fields, $count);
241    
242    Each of the five parameters corresponds to a text box on the query form:
243    
244    =over 4
245    
246    =item Objects
247    
248    Comma-separated list containing the names of the entity and relationship objects to be retrieved.
249    
250    =item Filter
251    
252    WHERE/ORDER BY clause (without the WHERE) to be used to filter and sort the query. The WHERE clause can
253    be parameterized with parameter markers (C<?>). Each field used must be specified in the standard form
254    B<I<objectName>(I<fieldName>)> or B<$I<number>(I<fieldName>)> where I<fieldName> is the name of a
255    field, I<objectName> is the name of the entity or relationship object containing the field, and
256    I<number> is the 1-based position of the object in the object list. Any parameters
257    specified in the filter clause should be specified in the B<Params> field.
258    The fields in a filter clause can come from primary entity relations,
259    relationship relations, or secondary entity relations; however, all of the
260    entities and relationships involved must be included in the list of object names.
261    
262    =item Params
263    
264    List of the parameters to be substituted in for the parameters marks in the filter clause. This
265    is a comma-separated list without any quoting or escaping.
266    
267    =item fields
268    
269    Comma-separated list of the fields to be returned in each element of the list returned. Fields
270    are specified in the same manner as in the filter clause.
271    
272    =item count
273    
274    Maximum number of records to return. If omitted or 0, all available records will be returned.
275    
276    =back
277    
278    B<GetAll> automatically joins together the entities and relationships listed in the object
279    names. This simplifies the coding of the filter clause, but it means that some queries are
280    not possible, since they cannot be expressed in a linear sequence of joins. This is a limitation
281    that has yet to be addressed.

379  Modify the trace level. A higher trace level will cause more messages to appear.  This method performs standard command-line parsing and tracing setup. The return
380    values are a hash of the command-line options and a list of the positional
381    parameters. Tracing is automatically set up and the command-line options are
382    validated.

387  =item newLevel  The I<categories> parameter is the most obtuse. It is a reference to a list of
388    special-purpose tracing categories. Most tracing categories are PERL package
389    names. So, for example, if you wanted to turn on tracing inside the B<Sprout>,
390    B<ERDB>, and B<SproutLoad> packages, you would specify the categories

393    
394  =back  This would cause trace messages in the specified three packages to appear in

397    to include these categories manually, but if you use this method they are turned
398    on automatically.

420    C<trace>I<$$>C<.log> in the FIG temporary directory, where I<$$> is the
421    process ID. You can also specify the C<user> parameter to put a user ID
422    instead of a process ID in the trace file name. So, for example
423    
424  C<< Tracer::LogErrors($fileName); >>  The default trace level is 2. To get all messages, specify a trace level of 4.
425    For a genome-by-genome update, use 3.

430    
431  =item fileName  The I<options> parameter is a reference to a hash containing the command-line
432    options, their default values, and an explanation of what they mean. Command-line
433    options may be in the form of switches or keywords. In the case of a switch, the
434    option value is 1 if it is specified and 0 if it is not specified. In the case
435    of a keyword, the value is separated from the option name by an equal sign. You
436    can see this last in the command-line example above.

438  Name of the file to receive the error output.  You can specify a different default trace level by setting C<$options->{trace}>

440    
441  =back  An example at this point would help. Consider, for example, the command-line utility
442    C<TransactFeatures>. It accepts a list of positional parameters plus the options
443    C<safe>, C<noAlias>, C<start>, and C<tblFiles>. To start up this command, we execute
444    the following code.
445    
446  =cut      my ($options, @parameters) = Tracer::StandardSetup(["DocUtils"],
447                            { safe => [0, "use database transactions"],

450                              tblFiles => [0, "output TBL files containing the corrected IDs"] },
451                            "<command> <transactionDirectory> <IDfile>",
452                          @ARGV);
453    
 sub LogErrors {  
         # Get the file name.  
         my ($fileName) = @_;  
         # Open the file as the standard error output.  
         open STDERR, '>', $fileName;  
 }  
454    
455  =head3 ReadOptions  The call to C<ParseCommand> specifies the default values for the options and
456    stores the actual options in a hash that is returned as C<$options>. The
457    positional parameters are returned in C<@parameters>.
458    
459  C<< my %options = Tracer::ReadOptions($fileName); >>  The following is a sample command line for C<TransactFeatures>.
460    
461  Read a set of options from a file. Each option is encoded in a line of text that has the      TransactFeatures -trace=2 -noAlias register ../xacts IDs.tbl
 format  
462    
463  I<optionName>C<=>I<optionValue>C<; >I<comment>  Single and double hyphens are equivalent. So, you could also code the
464    above command as
465    
466  The option name must consist entirely of letters, digits, and the punctuation characters      TransactFeatures --trace=2 --noAlias register ../xacts IDs.tbl
 C<.> and C<_>, and is case sensitive. Blank lines and lines in which the first nonblank  
 character is a semi-colon will be ignored. The return hash will map each option name to  
 the corresponding option value.  
467    
468  =over 4  In this case, C<register>, C<../xacts>, and C<IDs.tbl> are the positional
469    parameters, and would find themselves in I<@parameters> after executing the
470    above code fragment. The tracing would be set to level 2, and the categories
471    would be C<Tracer>, and <DocUtils>. C<Tracer> is standard,
472    and C<DocUtils> was included because it came in within the first parameter
473    to this method. The I<$options> hash would be
474    
475  =item fileName      { trace => 2, sql => 0, safe => 0,
476          noAlias => 1, start => ' ', tblFiles => 0 }
477    
478  Name of the file containing the option data.  Use of C<StandardSetup> in this way provides a simple way of performing
479    standard tracing setup and command-line parsing. Note that the caller is
480    not even aware of the command-line switches C<-trace> and C<-sql>, which
481    are used by this method to control the tracing. If additional tracing features
482    need to be added in the future, they can be processed by this method without
483    upsetting the command-line utilities.
484    
485  =item RETURN  If the C<background> option is specified on the command line, then the
486    standard and error outputs will be directed to files in the temporary
487    directory, using the same suffix as the trace file. So, if the command
488    line specified
489    
490  Returns a hash mapping the option names specified in the file to their corresponding option      -user=Bruce -background
 value.  
491    
492  =back  then the trace output would go to C<traceBruce.log>, the standard output to
493    C<outBruce.log>, and the error output to C<errBruce.log>. This is designed to
494    simplify starting a command in the background.
495    
496  =cut  The user name is also used as the tracing key for L</Emergency Tracing>.
497    Specifying a value of C<E> for the trace level causes emergency tracing to
498    be used instead of custom tracing. If the user name is not specified,
499    the tracing key is taken from the C<Tracing> environment variable. If there
500    is no value for that variable, the tracing key will be computed from the PID.

517    
518  Consider the following example.  The caller has the option of modifying the tracing scheme by placing a value
519    for C<trace> in the incoming options hash. The default value can be overridden,
520    or the tracing to the standard output can be turned off by suffixing a minus
521    sign to the trace level. So, for example,
522    
523  C<< my $optionTable = GetOptions({ dbType => 'mySQL', trace => 0 }, $options); >>      { trace => [0, "tracing level (default 0)"],
524           ...
525    
526  In this example, the variable B<$options> is expected to contain at most two options-- B<dbType> and  would set the default trace level to 0 instead of E, while
 B<trace>. The default database type is C<mySQL> and the default trace level is C<0>. If the value of  
 B<$options> is C<< {dbType => 'Oracle'} >>, then the database type will be changed to C<Oracle> and  
 the trace level will remain at 0. If B<$options> is undefined, then the database type and trace level  
 will remain C<mySQL> and C<0>. If, on the other hand, B<$options> is defined as  
527    
528  C<< {databaseType => 'Oracle'} >>      { trace => ["2-", "tracing level (default 2)"],
529           ...
530    
531  an error will occur because the B<databaseType> option does not exist.  would set the default to 2, but trace only to the log file, not to the

794    
795    A file specification is the string passed to an C<open> call. It specifies the file
796    mode and name. In a truly complex situation, it can specify a pipe sequence. This
797    method assumes that the file name is whatever follows the first angle bracket
798    sequence.  So, for example, in the following strings the file name is
799    C</usr/fig/myfile.txt>.

850

1292    specifiers of the form C<->I<option> or C<->I<option>C<=>I<value>. The options are stripped
1293    off and merged into a table of default options. The remainder of the command line is
