BioMake and Skam
Skam is a task management tool, similar to makefiles. BioMake is a wrapper around Skam for use in bioinformatics contexts.
2005/12/01: Skam makeover
I've started on a new version of skam, some things are changed from the ground-up. It should still be possible to run old skam makefiles with the new language. The new language has a more consistent syntax, and embeds more of the logic inside the functional language libraries rather than hardcoded in the system, making everything much more configurable. Stay tuned for details.
2005/03/06: Skam ported to SWI-Prolog
Skam has been ported to SWI-Prolog. SWI is more widely used and has a more active user community than XSB Prolog (the system previously used from Skam). Not yet fully tested in SWI, report problems to cjm. Documentation requires update.
More documentation coming soon...
- Brief introduction to skam
- Skam userguide (under construction!) [ HTML | RTF | SGML ]
- BioMake BOSC presentation [ PDF | Powerpoint ]
- BioMake BDGP internal presentation [ OpenOffice | PowerPoint ] (formatting may be a little messed up in ppt version).
The first biomake/skam distro available soon; email cjm-at-fruitfly-org if you are interested in using this.
For now, you can obtain code from Sourceforge CVS
