NAME

makeflow_linker - automatic dependency location for workflows

SYNOPSIS

makeflow_linker [options] <workflow_description>

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.

OPTIONS

--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.

EXIT STATUS

On success, returns zero. On failure (typically permission errors), returns non-zero.

BUGS

EXAMPLES

Package a workflow:
makeflow_linker -o example_mf example.mf
Run packaged workflow:
makeflow example_mf/example.mf
