umls_similarity_server.pl - [Web] The backend UMLS::Similarity server for the Web Interface
Usage: umls_similarity_server.pl [--port PORTNUMBER] [--logfile LOGFILE] [--maxchild NUM] | --help | --version
This script implements the backend of the web interface for UMLS::Similarity.
This script listens to a port waiting for a request form similarity.cgi or wps.cgi. The client script sends a message to this script as series of queries (see QUERY FORMAT). After all the queries, the client sends a message containing only CRLF (carriage-return line-feed, or \015\012).
The server (this script) responds with the results (see MESSAGE FORMAT) terminated by a message containing only CRLF.
Client: g car#n#1CRLF CRLF Sever responds: g car#n#1 4-wheeled motor vehicle; usually propelled by an internal combustion engine; "he needs a car to get to work"CRLF CRLF
--port=PORTNUMBER Specify the port PORTNUMBER for the server to listen on.
--logfile=LOGFILE The output LOGFILE where any error or warning messages should be written out.
--maxchild=NUM Specify the maximum number NUM of the processes that should be forked to handle the requests.
--help Display the help message and quit.
--version Display the version information and quit.
<CRLF> means carriage-return line-feed "\r\n" on Unix, "\n\r" on Macs, \015\012 everywhere and anywhere (i.e., don't use \n or \r, use \015\012).
The queries consist of messages in the following formats:
s <word1> <word2><CRLF> - server will return all senses of word1 and word2 g <word><CRLF> - server will return the gloss for each synset to which word belongs r <wps1> <wps2> <measure> <etc...><CRLF> - server will return the relatedness of wps1 and wps2 using measure. v <CRLF> - get version information
The messages sent from this server will be in the following formats:
! <msg><CRLF> - indicates an error or warning g <wps> <gloss><CRLF> - the gloss of wps r <wps1> <wps2> <score><CRFL> - the relatedness score of wps1 and wps2 t <msg><CRLF> - the trace output for the previous relatedness score s <wps1> <wps2> ... <wpsN><CRLF> - a synset v <package> <version number><CRLF> - the version of 'package' being used
