findPathToRoot.pl - This program returns all possible paths from a given CUI to the root.
This program takes a CUI or a term and returns all of possible paths to the root.
Usage: findPathToRoot.pl [OPTIONS] [CUI|TERM|ST]
A concept (CUI), a term or a semantic type (using the --st option) from the Unified Medical Language System.
The input is a semantic type and the path to root information is obtained from the semantic network. This can either be a TUI or the Abbrevation of the semantic type.
This is the configuration file. The format of the configuration file is as follows:
SAB :: <include|exclude> <source1, source2, ... sourceN>
REL :: <include|exclude> <relation1, relation2, ... relationN>
RELA :: <include|exclude> <rela1, rela2, ... relaN> (optional)
For example, if we wanted to use the MSH vocabulary with only the RB/RN relations, the configuration file would be:
SAB :: include MSH REL :: include RB, RN RELA :: include inverse_isa, isa
SAB :: include MSH REL :: exclude PAR, CHD
If you go to the configuration file directory, there will be example configuration files for the different runs that you have performed.
File containing a list of CUIs or terms. Each CUI or term is required to be on its own line. For example:
CUI1 term1 CUI2 CUI3 ...
Sets the debug flag for testing
Username is required to access the umls database on MySql unless it was specified in the my.cnf file at installation
Password is required to access the umls database on MySql unless it was specified in the my.cnf file at installation
Hostname where mysql is located. DEFAULT: localhost
The socket your mysql is using. DEFAULT: /tmp/mysql.sock
Database contain UMLS DEFAULT: umls
This option will not create a database of the path information for all of concepts in the specified set of sources and relations in the config file but obtain the information for just the input concept
This option will bypass any command prompts such as asking if you would like to continue with the index creation.
This option will print out the table information to the config file that you specified.
This option takes in a file containing a list of CUIs (one CUI per line) and stores only the path information for those CUIs rather than for all of the CUIs given the specified set of sources and relations
This prints out the relation and source information between the CUIs in the path. This option is only available for the CUI network.
Takes in a propagation file and then outputs the information content of the CUIs in the shortest path
Displays the quick summary of program options.
Displays the version information.
