drPACS is a simple yet flexible and effective pipeliner for Unix commands. There is a document (currently Appendix A in the PACS cookbook) describing this is more detail,but here is just a teaser to get a feel for what you can do with it.

Assuming it has been installed, a $DRPACS environment variable points to where the code lives, and normally $DRPACS/bin will have been added to your search path.

Simple examples how to start

Step 1: generate the control Pipefile (hint: it's a Makefile)

  pipeline $DRPACS/cat/pipeline.001 > Pipefile
  pipeline 4 step1 step2 step3 step4 > Pipefile

Step 2: set some parameters

  pipepar -c
  pipepar -c project=c0184.3B_108PG2130.13 carmaRefant=2
  pipepar interval=5 carmaRefant=3

Step 3: run the pipe

  pipe all
  pipe step2
  pipe all
  pipe clean
