ANNOUNCEMENT (10th May 2001):


What is SATREPORT

SATREPORT is a tabular report layout tool. The output is (by default) processed by SATFILTER to produce "word procesor" quality reports.

SATREPORT can add front/back pages and divide the report in "group" sections. Cumulative counts of data items by group/report and Cumulative sums of column data items by group/report are automatically maintained.

SATREPORT is implemented as a script for easy portability.

How SATREPORT works

SATREPORT reads TAB delimited columns of data from standard input. This is compatible with the normal "batch" output format from the MySQL database system.

Any SAT/ML tags applicable to SATFILTER may be used in the report definition to control the appearance of the printed report.

Release Status

SATREPORT is currently at release 1.00.00

System Requirements

Any Unix system with a version of nawk/gawk which supports toupper and tolower.

Installation

To extract the Unix "tar" files


The directory location of the SATREPORT script (satreport) is not important, but it is suggested that it be placed in the /usr/local/bin directory.

The line of satreport containing the reference to nawk may need to be changed if nawk/gawk on your system is known by another name.
