Detailed Description

Make CGAL functionality available to IMP.

CGAL

CGAL is a library of geometry-related algorithms and data structures written in C++. The relevant parts of CGAL are licensed under LGPL and QPL and commercial licenses are available if needed. More information can be found on the CGAL license page.

The module should not be used directly by users. Instead IMP.algebra and IMP.core functionality will be improved when CGAL is available. The main purpose of this module is to allow certain CGAL code to be built with different build flags than the rest of IMP. Specifically, CGAL needs IEEE floating point specs to be followed exactly.

Standard module functions

All IMP modules have a set of standard functions to help get information about the module and about files associated with the module.

std::string get_module_version ()
 
std::string get_module_name ()
 
std::string get_data_path (std::string file_name)
 Return the full path to one of this module's data files. More...
 
std::string get_example_path (std::string file_name)
 Return the full path to one of this module's example files. More...
 

Function Documentation

std::string IMP::cgal::get_data_path ( std::string  file_name)

Return the full path to one of this module's data files.

To read the data file "data_library" that was placed in the data directory of this module, do something like

std::ifstream in(IMP::cgal::get_data_path("data_library"));

This will ensure that the code works both when IMP is installed or if used via the setup_environment.sh script.

Note
Each module has its own data directory, so be sure to use this function from the correct module.
std::string IMP::cgal::get_example_path ( std::string  file_name)

Return the full path to one of this module's example files.

To read the example file "example_protein.pdb" that was placed in the examples directory of this module, do something like

std::ifstream in(IMP::cgal::get_example_path("example_protein.pdb"));

This will ensure that the code works both when IMP is installed or if used via the setup_environment.sh script.

Note
Each module has its own example directory, so be sure to use this function from the correct module.
