This MR reworks and unifies the input and output of files and paths. The following changes have been made:
- ModuleManager and central Corryvreckan class are now independent (more of a structural than functional change)
- All input paths are now taken relative to the configuration file. In modules, use
config.get<std::string>("myfile)as the latter will again be relative to the executing folder, not to the configuration file.
- There are three new global parameters
purge_output_directory, described in the manual.
- Output files created my modules should use
auto path = createOutputFile(config.get<std::string>("output_file_name")); auto my_file = std::ofstream(path);
- The global configuration is not anymore inherited by individual modules. This was very messy anyway.
This fixes #17 (closed)
