Hi there -
I have been trying to implement your virtual-flow system. I appreciate your efforts in setting this up and showing that it can work.
One of my barriers to implementing it for my system is a lack of definitions in the documentation.
Terms like ‘step’, ‘collection’, ‘queue’, ‘job’ all appear to be important to know how to set variables in the all.ctrl file, yet I haven’t been able to find the exact definition for these terms. I have spent the past several weeks guessing at what they may mean based on posted examples but haven’t made much progress.
Perhaps a page of very well described definitions and suggested guidelines for ranges on these variables would be helpful here. I realize that some of this available as comments throughout the file - but these are easy to miss and for some when I have inquired it seems that they have no consequence. It has been a little bit frustrating trying to understand what should be changed.
Many thanks for your contribution to open-source highthroughput screening and looking forward to more great work from the virtual-flow team.
