It is always good to have tools at disposal, which relieve work on building a program. Two parts of any program deserve a special attention, ie. the beginning and the end. It is important especially in cases, when it is necessary to handle data stored in a file, prosess it, create figures and make record on results, and at last to store them for documentation purposes. Two functions, openjob and closejob, which fulfill the task, are presented here.
The function >>openjob<< enables to browse tree of data files, find and pick a required data file for processing, start recording and return path and file name of a selected file.
The function >>closejob<< finishes the task. It closes diaring and, if required, saves it as a record from the data processing. Afterwards, it saves figures (if any) in selected multiple formats. Both records and figures are stored in required directories, which are created, if don't exist.
The set is complemented by the script testjob which shows how to use both functions.
