The following sections shortly describe how to run
DATCLASS from the command-line on any of the supported platforms, the
required input and runtime output
DATCLASS applies machine learning methods to rapidly classify the particle shape
and estimate Molecular Weight (Da) and Dmax (A) from SAXS patterns. Possible shape
Please note that no parameter estimates are provided for objects classified as
either "random-chain" or "unknown". The output will show "N/A" instead.
DATCLASS requires external files to run. If DATCLASS reports:
error: shape classifier initialization failed
please verify your installation and/or make sure that the ATSAS
environment variable is set correctly.
$ datclass [OPTIONS] <DATAFILE(S)>
OPTIONS known by DATCLASS are described in next section, the required argument(s)
FILE(S) in the section on input files.
DATCLASS requires the following command line arguments:
||Data files in any of the supported formats.
Absolute as well as relative paths to data files are accepted. Up to one of
the input files may also be given as '-', in this case input is read from stdin
instead of a file.
DATCLASS recognizes following command-line options:
|Short option||Long option||Description
||Experimental Radius of Gyration in the units of the data. This option is mandatory for experimental data files.
||Experimental forward scattering in the units of the data. This option is mandatory for experimental data files.
||Index of the first point to be used. Default: 1.
||Query and print the N nearest neighbours of the input data and exit. Default: N=5.
||Print feature vector of input data and exit.
||Print version information and exit.
||Print a summary of arguments and options and exit.
DATCLASS output consists of one result line for each input file with the following values: shape classification, MW (Da), Dmax (A), file name.
FILE may come in any supported file format that provides a scattering vector,
experimental intensity and experimental errors.
If FILE is a GNOM output file, reciprocal space Rg and I0 stated in the file are used, but may be overridden by the corresponding command-line options.
