Test is provided as a skeleton for programmers to test ideas.


The Test program is provided so that users can test their own programming ideas. Simply put your program into EGenSourceVMS:test.for and then use "ebuildapp test" to build it, and "test" to run it.

Command line details can be put into EGenRunDoc:test.cmd and will then be available with the CHEck command line qualifier.


This program was written by Peter Rice (E-mail: pmr@sanger.ac.uk Post: Informatics Division, The Sanger Centre, Hinxton Hall, Cambridge, CB10 1RQ, UK).

All EGCG programs are supported by the EGCG Support Team, who can be contacted by E-mail (egcg@embnet.org).


All parameters for this program may be put on the command line. Use the option -CHEck to see the summary below and to have a chance to add things to the command line before the program executes. In the summary below, the capitalized letters in the qualifier names are the letters that you must type in order to use the parameter. Square brackets ([ and ]) enclose qualifiers or parameter values that are optional. For more information, see "Using Program Parameters" in Chapter 3, Basic Concepts: Using Programs in the GCG User's Guide.
