Detailed Description

Represents the LibraryOptions section of mascot.dat.

See : ms_datfile::getLibraryOptions and ms_datfile::setLibraryOptions

Also get yourselves acquainted with the base class ms_customproperty. It facilitates the following tasks:

More functionality is described in the documentation for ms_customproperty.


Constructor & Destructor Documentation

Default constructor.

Create an object with no options

Copying constructor.

C++ only. Use copyFrom from other languages.

Parameters:
srcis the source options to copy into the new object

Destructor.

Frees any memory


Member Function Documentation

void copyFrom ( const ms_libraryoptions right )

Can be used to copy content from another instance.

Copy all the parameter for the libraries from right into the object

Parameters:
rightis the source library options
void defaultValues (  )

Initializes the instance.

Remove details for all the libraries

Reimplemented from ms_customproperty.

void dropSpectralLibrary ( const char *  spectralLibraryName )

Remove all references to the specified spectral library.

Parameters:
spectralLibraryNameis the (short) name of the library
std::string getLibraryName ( const int  num ) const

Return the name of the library.

Parameters:
nummust be in the range 0 to getNumberOfLibraries() -1
Returns:
the name of the library which can be used in other functions such as getReferenceFasta()
int getNumberOfLibraries (  ) const

Return the number of libraries.

Returns:
The number of libraries with parameters in the section
std::string getPreceedingComments (  ) const [inherited]

Returns any comments preceeding the section.

Sections in the mascot.dat file may have comments preceeding them. In most cases, these comments need to stay 'attached' to the section.

Multiple line comments are supported by having a single string with newline characters

See also:
setPreceedingComments()
Returns:
any comments preceeding the section
std::string getReferenceFasta ( const char *  spectralLibraryName ) const

Returns the name of the Fasta database used as a reference for accessions for the spectral library.

A Spectral library is essentially a peptide library and will often not contain meaningful accessions. To get useful protein grouping in Mascot reports, it is recommended that users specify a 'reference' database. When a reference database is used, Mascot tries to find the peptide sequence from the library in the reference fasta, and if it is found then it adds the accession for that protein sequence to the search results.

See also:
getReferenceFastaTaxonomyTitle()
Parameters:
spectralLibraryNameis the (short) name of the library
Returns:
the (short) name of the reference fasta
std::string getReferenceFastaTaxonomyTitle ( const char *  spectralLibraryName ) const

Returns the title of the taxonomy to use for the reference database.

The reference database may contain protein accessions from multiple taxa. If a suitable taxonomy index is configured, you can define the taxon to use for reference accessions. The returned value is the title string of an entry in the taxonomy configuration file (typically mascot/config/taxonomy).

See also:
getReferenceFasta()
Parameters:
spectralLibraryNameis the (short) name of the library
Returns:
the title of the taxon, or the empty string if not set.
double getToleranceInDa ( const char *  spectralLibraryName ) const

Returns the tolerance of the data in spectral library.

A spectral library is created using an instrument with a known tolerance and this tolerance is specified by the user when they enable the use of the library in Mascot. When the library is searched, the tolerance used is the square root of the sum of the squares of the data being searched and this value.

The tolerance of the library is specified in Da and ppm since the user may choose either units when they submit a search.

See also, getToleranceInPPM(), setToleranceInPPM() and setToleranceInDa()

If spectralLibraryName does not exist, returns the default (0.6 Da)

Parameters:
spectralLibraryNameis the (short) name of the library
Returns:
the tolerance of the data in the library
double getToleranceInPPM ( const char *  spectralLibraryName ) const

Returns the tolerance of the data in spectral library.

A spectral library is created using an instrument with a known tolerance and this tolerance is specified by the user when they enable the use of the library in Mascot. When the library is searched, the tolerance used is the square root of the sum of the squares of the data being searched and this value.

The tolerance of the library is specified in Da and ppm since the user may choose either units when they submit a search.

See also, setToleranceInPPM(), getToleranceInDa() and setToleranceInDa()

If spectralLibraryName does not exist, returns the default (500ppm)

Parameters:
spectralLibraryNameis the (short) name of the library
Returns:
the tolerance of the data in the library
bool isSectionAvailable (  ) const

Check whether the section has been actually read from the file.

By default the LibraryOptions section is unavailable until it has been set to a different state.

The section does not have to exist in the mascot.dat file

Returns:
true if the section exists
ms_libraryoptions & operator= ( const ms_libraryoptions right )

Assignment operator for C++ client applications.

C++ only

Parameters:
rightis the source library options
Returns:
a reference to 'this'
void setPreceedingComments ( const std::string &  comments ) [inherited]

Sets any comments preceeding the section.

Sections in the mascot.dat file may have comments preceeding them. In most cases, these comments need to stay 'attached' to the section.

Multiple line comments are supported by having a single string with newline characters

See also:
getPreceedingComments()
Parameters:
commentsany comments preceeding the section
void setReferenceFasta ( const char *  spectralLibraryName,
const char *  fastaDatabaseName,
const char *  taxonomyTitle 
)

Sets the name of the Fasta database used as a reference for accessions for the spectral library.

A Spectral library is essentially a peptide library and will often not contain meaningful accessions. To get useful protein grouping in Mascot reports, it is recommended that users specify a 'reference' database. When a reference database is used, Mascot tries to find the peptide sequence from the library in the reference fasta. If it is found, Mascot adds the accession for that protein sequence to the search results.

The reference database may contain protein accessions from multiple taxa. To restrict accesions to a particular taxon, give its title as the third argument. Titles typically come from the taxonomy configuration file (mascot/config/taxonomy). If left empty, there is no restriction.

Parameters:
spectralLibraryNameis the (short) name of the library
fastaDatabaseNameis the (short) name of the reference database
taxonomyTitleis the title of the taxon to use, or the empty string.
void setSectionAvailable ( const bool  value )

Changes availability of the section, i.e. whether it should be saved in a file.

The section does not have to exist in the mascot.dat file

Parameters:
valueset to true if the section exists
void setToleranceInDa ( const char *  spectralLibraryName,
double  tolerance 
)

Sets the tolerance of the data in spectral library.

A spectral library is created using an instrument with a known tolerance and this tolerance is specified by the user when they enable the use of the library in Mascot. When the library is searched, the tolerance used is the square root of the sum of the squares of the data being searched and this value.

The tolerance of the library is specified in Da and ppm since the user may choose either units when they submit a search.

See also, getToleranceInPPM(), setToleranceInPPM() and getToleranceInDa()

If spectralLibraryName does not exist, returns the default (500ppm)

Parameters:
spectralLibraryNameis the (short) name of the library
toleranceis the new tolerance for spectralLibraryName
void setToleranceInPPM ( const char *  spectralLibraryName,
double  tolerance 
)

Sets the tolerance of the data in spectral library.

A spectral library is created using an instrument with a known tolerance and this tolerance is specified by the user when they enable the use of the library in Mascot. When the library is searched, the tolerance used is the square root of the sum of the squares of the data being searched and this value.

The tolerance of the library is specified in Da and ppm since the user may choose either units when they submit a search.

See also, getToleranceInPPM(), getToleranceInDa() and setToleranceInDa()

If spectralLibraryName does not exist, this adds a new entry for the library and sets a default value for other parameters for the library

Parameters:
spectralLibraryNameis the (short) name of the library
toleranceis the new tolerance for spectralLibraryName
