Intended to be called from your OnStart proc. This initializes the EZBuilder and controls how it will behave. The parameters to this command are option value pairs. See EXAMPLES below for some typical option sets.
For information about the specific options, see OPTIONS below and EVBC::start.
The EVBC::initialize command accepts all options that the EVBC::start understands as well as the following additional options:
-guion | off
true, EZBuilder will
add a control strip to the bottom of the ReadoutGUI
control panel. This control strip will give you
dynamic control over the options controlled by
Only do this if you trust your users to be able to set sensible values in this user interface. If you don't you will sleep better at night choosing the options you want and disabling the GUI strip.
-restartyes | no
-restart is yes,
the event builder pipeline is restarted at the beginning
of each run (See EVBC::onBegin).
Otherwise, the event builder timstamp memory is just
reset at the beginning of each run and the
event builder pipline is only started at the beginning
of the first run.
-glombuildyes | no
yes, the fragments will be
correlated into build physics events. That means
that more than one fragment may be stuck into the
body of a ring item of type PHYSICS_EVENT. The
correlation parameter is provided by the
-glomdt parameter. If the value is
no, then there will only be one
fragment stuffed into the body of the built physics
events outputted by the event builder. The value is
provided as a default value and the user can
override it using the event builder gui controls.
This specifies the number of "ticks" that define a correlation window. Fragments whose timestamps differ by less than this value will be correlated together. The value should be considered a default value because the user can override this value through the event builder gui controls. The default value is 1.
Built physics events are labeled with an integer
source id equal to the value passed for the
-glomid option. The default value is 0.
-glomtimestamppolicyearliest | latest | average
The timestamp assigned to the built physics event outputted from the event builder can be either the earlier, latest, or average value of the correlated timestamps.
The value passed to
-destring is the
name of a ring buffer that the event builder will
output its data to. The default value is the user's account name.
-setdestringasevtlogsourceyes | no
If the value passed is yes, then the eventlog program will use the output ring of the event builder as its data source. Default value is false.
The example below does not allow event builder parameters to be modified between runs. It requests a new instance of the event builder for each run. Note that this implies that the begin run will invoke startEVBSources if that command/proc has been defined. That allows you to start fragment sources after the event builder pipeline has been started.
The exmple below initially requests a restart before each run but, since the GUI is enabled, this can be modified by the user.
