Batch file processing = Yes

To avoid Facets requesting user intervention when it is run in batch mode from the DOS prompt or otherwise, include Batch=Yes on the command line in your.bat or .cmd file.

 

The general format is: Facets BATCH=YES specification-file output-file extra-specifications

 

Under Windows-2000, -XP and later Windows-NT

It is often useful to run multiple Facets tasks, one after the other, without keyboard intervention. This can be accomplished by running Facets in CMD batch mode.

 

Here is a typical .CMD file. It is Facetsxp.cmd in the Examples folder. Double-click on it to launch it.

 

echo  This is the version for Windows-NT, 2000

echo  This is a batch file to run Facets in batch mode

echo  Edit the next lines and add more.

echo  Format of lines is:

echo  START /WAIT ..\Facets BATCH=YES Control-file Output-file Extra=specifications

START /WAIT ..\Facets BATCH=YES dives.txt dives.out.txt

START /WAIT ..\Facets BATCH=YES lfs.txt lfs.out.txt

START /WAIT ..\Facets BATCH=YES kct.txt kct.out.txt

 

Under early versions of Windows (e.g. 98, ME, but not 95 nor 3.1)

It is often useful to run multiple Facets tasks, one after the other, without keyboard intervention. This can be accomplished by running Facets in batch mode.

 

Here is a typical .bat file. It is Facets95.bat in the Examples folder. Double-click on it to launch it.

 

echo  This is a batch file to run Facets in batch mode

echo  Edit the next lines and add more.

echo  Format of lines is:

echo  START /w ..\Facets BATCH=YES Control-file Output-file Extra=specifications

START /w ..\Facets BATCH=YES dives.txt dives.out.txt

START /w ..\Facets BATCH=YES lfs.txt lfs.out.txt  

START /w ..\Facets BATCH=YES kct.txt kct.out.txt  

 

Under early Windows-NT

It is often useful to run multiple Facets tasks, one after the other, without keyboard intervention. This can be accomplished by running Facets in batch mode.

 

Here is a typical .bat file. It is FacetsNT.bat in the Examples folder. Double-click on it to launch it.

 

echo  This is a batch file to run Facets in batch mode

echo  Edit the next lines and add more.

echo  Format of lines is:

echo  Facets BATCH=YES Control-file Output-file Extra=specifications

..\Facets BATCH=YES dives.txt dives.out

..\Facets BATCH=YES lfs.txt lfs.out.txt

..\Facets BATCH=YES kct.txt kct.out.txt

 


 

Example: Simulate and analyze 1000 Facets data sets from lfs.txt

 

 Create text file "Simul.bat" in the Examples folder, copy this text into it, save and double-click on Simul.bat

 

Rem Simulate and analyze 1000 data sets

rem perform analysis of the original data and write out the anchor values

START /WAIT ..\Facets BATCH=YES lfs.txt specfile.out.txt anchorfile=lfsanc.txt

SET /A COUNT=1 

:LOOP 

echo Loop number %COUNT% 

rem do this 1000 times

IF %COUNT% == 1001 GOTO END 

rem generate simulate data file from lfsanc.txt to avoid re-estimation each time

START /WAIT ..\Facets BATCH=YES lfsanc.txt specfile.out.txt simul=s%COUNT%.txt

rem analyze simulated file replacing data in lfs.txt with the simulated data

START /WAIT ..\Facets BATCH=YES lfs.txt s%COUNT%.out.txt data=s%COUNT%.txt scorefile=sc%COUNT%.txt

rem accumulate scorefiles by facet

type sc%COUNT%1.txt >> cand.results.txt

type sc%COUNT%2.txt >> rater.results.txt

type sc%COUNT%3.txt >> paper.results.txt

type sc%COUNT%4.txt >> task.results.txt

SET /A COUNT=COUNT+1 

GOTO LOOP 

:END
