makeflow_linker - automatic dependency location for workflows
makeflow_linker [options] <workflow_description>
makeflow_linker is a tool for automatically determining dependencies of workflows. It accepts a workflow description, currently Makeflow syntax is required, and recursively determines the dependencies and produces a self-contained package. makeflow_linker supports Python, Perl, and shared libraries.
makeflow_linker finds dependencies by static analysis. eval and other dynamic code loading may obscure dependencies causing makeflow_linker to miss some critical dependencies. Therefore it is recommended to avoid these techniques when desiging a workflow.
| --dry-run ||Run without creating directories or copying dependencies.
| -h, --help ||Show this help screen.
| -n, --use-named ||Do not copy files which are part of a named dependency, e.g. standard libraries.
| -o,--output <directory>|
|Specify output directory.
| --verbose ||Output status during run.
| -v, --version ||Display version information.
On success, returns zero. On failure (typically permission errors), returns non-zero.
- The makeflow_linker does not check for naming collisions beyond the initial workflow inputs.
- The makeflow_linker relies on regex parsing of files
Package a workflow:
makeflow_linker -o example_mf example.mf
