Products and Parameters Reference

A product is a Unix file or directory that can be requested from Eli (see Top of Eli User Interface Reference Manual). Parameters allow the requestor to control some characteristics of the requested product. This document defines the available products and associated parameters. It is intended as a reference manual rather than a tutorial. The products and parameters are grouped by function; use the index to find a particular product or parameter by name.

Eli's products and parameters can be divided into six groups: The processor group allows a user to generate a processor and extract it from Eli, in either executable or source form, or to copy the complete set of files defining a processor. Inconsistencies in the specifications cause Eli to set either warning or abort status for the request being made; additional information about these inconsistencies can be obtained via the diagnostic group of products. Even though a set of specifications is consistent, it may not be correct. The testing product group should be used to exercise the processor, verifying that the specifications solve the proper problem. Products and parameters in the document group provide formatted versions of specifications that can be put on paper or rendered as hypertext. Finally, the derivation group allows the user to obtain information about the details of how products are derived and influence the derivation process in certain ways.
