Program description pages are generated by programs that produce WWW pages for the Texas A&M Department of Biology Herbarium (TAMU) system. These provide an archival reference, a reminder of how things were done, a tracker of various files involved, and general information.
CROQMAKE.IPF, generates a base HTML file - CRXFAMZZ.HTM - that carries alphabetical links to a series of 'menu' files [CRX?FAM.HTM] that are also created by the program. The latter allow mouse-based selection of flowering plant family names (technical and local) for family-level entry to the to an indexed file carrying URLs associated with the Flowering Plant Gateway. The program 'walks' through the data table CRONSORT.ITB, which carries all family names listed by Cronquist (1988) sorted alphabetically. This table has been modified from its original form (CRONQ3.ITB) using the program CRONADD1.IPF. This runs through the original CRONSORT.ITB and checks each 'accepted' Cronquist family name for a 'local' or 'common' family name in the data table FULLCOM2.ITB. This table carries local names developed by the Biota of North America Program. If found, CRONADD1.IPF takes data to the table CRONCOM1.ITB which is merged with CRONSORT.ITB and the latter re-sorted by technical/local name for the run of CROQMAKE.IPF. The program inserts HTML 'form' code into each of 26 family-level pages which uses CGI code produced by Erich Schneider, of the Texas A&M Center for the Study of Digital Libraries and the Texas A&M Bioinformatics Working Group. This allows conversion the selection to an active URL that queries an indexed file produced by VASCWWWO.IPF. CROQMAKE.IPF program code is written in the Knowledgeman (PC-database) language by Dr. Hugh D. Wilson.
