Finnigan::ScanEventPreamble -- a decoder for ScanEventPreamble, the byte array component of ScanEvent
use Finnigan; my $p = Finnigan::ScanEventPreamble->decode(\*INPUT, $version); say join(" ", $p->list); say join(" ", $p->list('decode'); say p->analyzer; say p->analyzer('decode');
ScanEventPreamble is a fixed-size (but version-dependent) structure. It is a byte array located at the head of each ScanEvent. It contains various boolean flags an enumerated types. For example, it's 41st byte contains the analyzer type in all versions:
%ANALYZER = ( 0 => "ITMS", 1 => "TQMS", 2 => "SQMS", 3 => "TOFMS", 4 => "FTMS", 5 => "Sector", 6 => "undefined" );
The ScanEventPreamble decoder provides a number of accessors that interpret the enumerated and boolean values.
The meaning of some values in ScanEventPreamble remains unknown.
The structure seems to have grown historically: to the 41 bytes in v.57, 39 more were added in v.62, and 8 further bytes were added in v.63. That does not affect the decoder interface; those values it knows about have not changed, but the version number still has to be passed into it so it knows how many bytes to read.
The constructor method
All of the following accessor methods will replace the byte value of the flag they access with a symbolic value representing that flag's meaning if given a truthy argument. The word 'decode' is a good one to use because it makes the code more readable, but any truthy value will work.
