Thread: How do you convert something from GSE to command line?

  1. #1

    Default How do you convert something from GSE to command line?

    If you have something in the GSE I understand there is a button to run the query.

    But is there an option to generate a command line query i.e. that you can type or paste onto the command line and thus execute the query without the GSE?

    I don't think it is possible.

    As I understand it, the GSE was developed to allow users to develop and run queries that are not possible on the command line. This means that a query that exploits the capabilities of the GSE cannot be translated to a command line search.

    Searches from the command line are not always run the same way as an equivalent query in GSE -- there are searches that run for a long time from the command line, but when converted by BW into a GSE query will run much more quickly.

    The BW feature that creates a GSE query is useful both as a tool to illustrate how the GSE works for simple searches, and as a tool to allow the user to quickly create a GSE query that can then be modified to do the things that the command line cannot. (BW is good at translating command line searches to GSE queries, but I have on a few occasions found that it wasn't able to translate a complex command line correctly.)
