ipw4 This program generates w4 structures - lists and files - for the w4 browser-based tasting system. Each incoming file is compared against the parameter file and added to each directory found. The text is left unaltered as it assumes 'ipxchg' has already cleaned it up. A single file can be in none, one or many lists. A single copy of the file is maintained for all the lists so that when it is copied/exported, the audit message is inserted at all relevant points in all relavant lists. If more than one publication is specified, then a copy of the file is made for each publication. In this case the audit message is restricted to those lists belonging to that publication. To decide which lists a file should be in, each destination in the Fip destination field 'DU' is compared to all the entries of the 'dest' parameters. Then the same is done for any 'testforlist' parameters. Note there MUST always be a DU field - even if you are only using 'testforlist'. The Parameter file is in tables/w4 and, by default, is called W4. The syntax is the normal Fip style : ; comment dest: define which lists an entry is inserted for each destination eg dest:w4arte list:KULTUR,ARTE Each list must be defined by a 'list:' parameter as below. These are fixed lists. eg dest:w4soccer list:SOCCER_SUNDAY,SPORT_SUNDAY list:SOCCER_SUNDAY maxitems:200 list:SPORT_SUNDAY .. or a specified FipSeq. dest:w4client list:\DA list:SUBLIST default-list-parameters:SUBLIST If you do not use 'default-list', any non-matching file is ignored. Case is ignored for the names of the 'list' and 'pub' There can be multiple lists separated by a comma. The same 'list' can be defined on several 'dest' lines but only one entry will be made. testforlist: define lists for one or more FipHdr tests. Syntax is testforlist:(list1,list2,..) (FipHdr)=(test) (FipHdr)#(test) There can be one or more lists separated by a comma (no spaces) There can be one or more tests with can be either equal '=' or not equal '#' (not equal can also be '!=' ) For the test a single wildcard '*' can be added at the end. To test for a blank field (or a field which does not exist), use double quotes : XY="" ZZ#"" eg: testforlist:AFX_SPORTS SU=afx XC=s* XC#sdd Both the FipHdr and the Test fields can be FipSeq .. eg ; Check if the source is 'epd' ; should be the XA field XA:epd ; BUT also XA:/AFP-SX77, so repeat on punctuation ; if XA does NOT exist or there is no data, chk SU repeat:Q1 XA,,1,#x repeat:Q2 XA,,2,#x combie:QA Q1|Q2|SU testforlist:epd QA=epd\$d Note that 'testforlist' and 'dest' can be equivalent except the test for 'testforlist' is case INsensitive while for 'dest' sensitive. list: define the size of a list and optional ticker. Sub Parameters are : maxitems maximum number of items Specify zero to mean all items default is all files. maxsize maximum no of chrs of text per item default is 1000 bytes ticker-items maximum no of items for the ticker if not specified, there is no ticker ticker-size max no of chrs per ticker item default is 60 bytes refresh (optional) refresh the main list only once every X secs. Normally the main LIST is refreshed on every new file pub (optional) publication name It restricts audits to a single publication. pub:sunday entry (optional) name of a specific entry if not the default. group (optional) Group List name Use this to build collated lists of several sub lists. eg group:ALL_SPORT The item is also put in this LIST The GROUP list is specified as an ordinary List but may/may not have any 'dests' or 'testforlists' pointing to it. It must be specified BEFORE any other list refers to it. maint:500 (optional) Trim the Top List to this number of items NONE - implying no maintenance - ie all items will be left in the main top list - ** Only use this with extreme care as the list can get very big !! MIDNIGHT or 0 (default) - trim the top list to start at midnight (number of items from 1 to 3000) - just that ! eg list:MOTOR maxitems:0 maxsize:300 ticker-items:100 ticker-size:60 pub: define publication - optional, use only for multi-pub sites. The same parameter is added to each 'list' line which means that any audit message will be restricted to that pub eg pub:sunday before: text to add at the top of the data file. after: text to add at the bottom of the data file. filebefore: file to add at the top of the data file. fileafter: file to add at the bottom of the data file. entry: List entry for each file in HTML with FipSeq. This is the directory line in the LIST. Special care should be taken if you need to change from the default as certain key fields are requred for Audit and Search These include the '<!-- @@## -->' and the first '<br>'. If more than one entry are specified (up to 100 may be), the first (ie top of file) is considered the default. Syntax: entry:(name) (HTML in FipSeq) see below for an example entry-abstract: ditto for the abstract part of the list (ie the bit underneath the clickable link to the data) search-entry: ditto for the search entry which defaults to "\\WQ/\\WN|\\$U|\\WK|\\WM|" ticker-entry: The List entry for Tickers. This is generally fairly short with no or few comments to reduce the size of each ticker list. script: Run a script after the file has been written. log: Item log entry if not default. folder: name of a sub-folder under /fip/data/w4 for this list. This should be used for your own scripts as the standard Fip w4 does not normally track folders. default-maxsize:(number of bytes) default is 1000 bytes metadata-for-source: Define the MetaData for a particular source. Do NOT put a tab in or NL or CR. syntax is metadata-for-source:(agencyName) (Meta Strings) Default the 'default-metadata' keyword or 'pri=\WP cat=\WC' for non-fip search and '\WP \WC' for fip search eg metatdata-for-source:WIRE2 sender=\XU ref=\XR The Headline (\WK), Source (\SU) and Filename (\SN) are always added automatically and do not need to be specified. default-metadata: Define default search metadata Default meta is 'pri=\WP cat=\WC' for non-fip search and '\WP \WC' for fip search Other less often used parameters : missing-list: (name of list) If the file is NOT in any other, it is added to this default: file is ignored default-list-parameters: (name of list) Use this to 'list' for all default parametes NOT specified. syndication-list: (FipSeq containing name of client) default-list-for-syndication: (name of list) Any file that matches a 'dest' but the 'list' is not specified uses the parameters as specified by this 'list' but is named as in the 'dest' line. ie if DA:biggles and DU:w4planes : syndication-list:\DA list:heros maxitems:0 default-list-for-syndication:heros so the list will be called BIGGLES with no check on the number of items. use-hour-folders: Where there is masses of data, store the files in hour folders in order to improve disk access. number: default number system - octal,decimal or hex. chkexists: for NFS or NT mapped drives, a check-file to make sure the drive is valid outputdrive: (NT only) drive letter for data audit-msg: Html string to replace the default audit message default: <font color=\"green\">Fetched by \\WA at \\WT<br></font> audit-text: Html string to replace the default audit text point output-filename: change the output filename supercede: files with the same name are normally replaced no-supercede: files with the same name are normally replaced use this to create new everytime. owner: Unix only, logon of the owner of the files if not yours archive: Archive the file in log/data NewSU: FipHdr field for source if NOT 'SU' wild: wild string chr for matching if not the default '*' singlewild: wild single chr for matching if not the default '?' hostname: Name of this host if not that booted from (for IP address) log-unmatched-files: If a file is NOT in any list - log it with a !ox flag allow-deletes: Allow Delete tokens to zap files and list items - default:no chrmap: (old 8 bit chr) (replacement 8 bit chr) default:no chrmap:\236\243 for FipHdr fields only list-end-of-line: String (in FipSeq) to flag an end-of-line in a List or Search default is none - all endoflines are translated to a space. Take care not to reuse a special chr which you are using to flag something else In particular the text-marker which is usually a TAB or a NL/CR which are end-of-item. default-unwrap-abstract: yes/no if the abtract text is wrapped - at 64 chrs for example - use this to put the list-end-of-line marker at the end of a para. Each file is checked for the optional FipHdr field W4_ABSTRACT_UNWRAP: yes/no which, if found, will override the default. zap-xml-abstract: yes/no ZAp all xml <p>, <br> etc in the abstract default: just zap the < and > Each file is checked for the optional FipHdr field W4_ABSTRACT_ZAP_XML: yes/no which, if found, will override the default. hdr-hash:\005 A single chr (usually a control chr - \005 or \035) to use internally in place of a hash '#' in the FipHdr default is 035 hdr-passthru:\023 A single chr (usually a control chr eg \023) to use as a placeholder for another chr (usually a hash) Normally this is used in conjuction with web/setup/(block).setup and w4_readfile.pl : passthru:\023# default is 000 indicating NO passthru chr allow-flow: (version9) Allow data to input into the Fip Web Flow system version 0 for pre 2014 multi-instance mods (default) version 1 for multi-instance flow-default-section: default section default: fip flow-default-status: default status default: Input flow-unique-id: FipSeq for generating the unique-id if there is not a W4_FLOW_ID default:\\WR flow-ext: File extension for files default: fip Do Not add the '.' This should match any filemapping on the client side for flow_edit.pl or flow_read.pl flow-balance: Balance Group for all data files default:none Files should have one or more of the FipHdr fields : W4_FLOW: This flag is needed to signal the file is part of a flow. no parameters required W4_FLOW_SECTION: (section name required - if not default) W4_FLOW_STATUS: (status required - if not default) W4_FLOW_ID:(actual ID to use) Optionally they can also have : W4_FLOW_L1: (data) .. W4_FLOW_L9: (data) These are extra fields for the LISTs in addition to the first line of data. They can be defaulted using parameters 'flow-default-1' etc Plus the usual suspects for FipSeq - such as fixed: partial: combie: option: repeat: style: replace: newdate: etx (pls link to http://www.fingerpost.co.uk and look for FipSeq ) Ordinary incoming files are checked for FIP header fields : W4_TOP: name of template file to add before the data of the file. The full path should be specified. default: none W4_BOTTOM: name of template file to add after the data of the file. The full path should be specified. default: none W4_HTML_IN_LIST: This flag will NOT strip any HTML in the List file Normally all tags - HTML, SGML or XML are stripped for the list Nor are they counted inthe 'chunks' for a list. ** Please label all Pictures this way : ie in sys/USERS w4reupix= DP:localhost DQ:2w4 DC:\SC W4_HTML_IN_LIST: W4_TOP_LIST: name of file to add before the List Entry. The full path should be specified. default: none W4_BOTTOM_LIST: name of template file to add after the List Entry. The full path should be specified. default: none W4_CHRSET: (chrset) Used with -C utf8 to flag files which are already UTF8 and so need no conversion This changes both fiphdrs and the abstract use W4_ABSTRACT_CHRSET: utf8 to change/flag the Abstract only use W4_FIPHDR_CHRSET: utf8 to change/flag the FipHdr only The chrset can be blank or utf8 W4_ABSTRACT: (FipSeq) Replacement for the abstract in the List and Search from the data in this FipHdr which is normally the first bit of text OR the entry-abstract:(entryname) for that service W4_ABSTRACT_FILE: (FullPathName) Replacement for the abstract in the List and Search from the contents of this file which is normally the first bit of text OR the entry-abstract:(entryname) for that service W4_ABSTRACT_UNWRAP: yes/no unwrap/ do not unwrap the abstract for this file default: no W4_ABSTRACT_ZAP_XML: yes/no remove any XML tags from the abstract default: no W4_LIST_DATE: (yyymmdd) Force the List/Search date to be this (default is current system time when the file hits the input folder) FipHdr fields used include : WM: Mime Type WZ: Xchg to use when reading the file.
