TODAC Command Line Application - Installation Guide

Quick installation (copy&paste)

/afs/cern.ch/exp/totem/soft/database/todac/release/install_tudas.sh
source /afs/cern.ch/exp/totem/soft/database/todac/release/todac_setup
todac -h

Detailed installation

Setting up TUDAS client

TUDAS client installation and configuration should be done only once. If you had installed TUDAS before, you don't need to do this again.

First of all, you have to set up your TUDAS client configuration to be able to communicate with the TOTEM Offline Database. Doing this is really simple - just run the installation script:

/afs/cern.ch/exp/totem/soft/database/todac/release/install_tudas.sh

This copies TUDAS configuration to $HOME/.tudas/ directory and by default sets your login in configuration file as a user that you are logged in.

The second step is to provide TUDAS with your credentials:

vim $HOME/.tudas/credentials.conf

Note: Currently, you don't have to provide your password. So only make sure that your login is filled in correctly.
Note: If you want to use default account (with proper permissions) change login to: totem.

Installing TODAC

Soft installation

That's the command you will have to run each session you want to use TODAC:

source /afs/cern.ch/exp/totem/soft/database/todac/release/todac_setup

Permanent installation

If you want to install TODAC permanently, you should run above command with option -permanent:

source /afs/cern.ch/exp/totem/soft/database/todac/release/todac_setup -permanent

(that command will set a permanent link to TODAC application in your linux session's start-up script ~/.bashrc)

Updates

As the TODAC command line application is under constant development it's possible that you will have to update your version. Everything you need to do is only running the commands on the top of this page (see "Quick installation").
