only basic search for building permits

Modified global variables so only the basic search is available to user. Also added a help file specifically for the business permits, changed global variable that writes link to it and edited the content of the help file.

etcl : update WordPress

Updated instance of wordpress in the dev site for ETCL. No apparent issues. To do that backed up the SQL db to .sql file on my mac and also copied the front-end pages to my mac, just in case.

Graves: P5 transformation of TEI P4 almost

My P4 to P5 conversion is now working, and producing valid output on abstracts, entries, and the project metadata file. I may do more work on this, but I'll be moving on to the -ography stuff next.

Generating candidate duplicate owners

I have a script currently generating a list of candidate duplicate owners. This is how it was done:

  • Export the owners table as XML.
  • Process with XSLT to sort by surname and forename fields.
  • Edit so each each record constitutes a single line.
  • Remove bracketing XML container, and add five blank lines.
  • Run the following script:

#This script is designed to run a series of comparison tests of xml-encoded owner
#records in an attempt to discover possible duplicates, which are then to be investigated
#by the PI manually.

#Threshold below which to consider a possible dupe

#First, paths to files.
NCD_COMMAND="ncd -l "

OUTFILE="/home/mholmes/WorkData/history/stanger-ross/properties/xml/owner_dupe_candidates_`date +%Y%m%d`.txt"

#Echo the start out to the output file.
echo "Possible duplicate owners found by string comparison using USM">$OUTFILE
echo "">$OUTFILE

#Initialize a counter
#Read in the inputs line by line
cat $INPUTFILE | while read line; 
#Ignore empty lines. This ensures we can read five lines forward (there are five empty lines at the end of the file).
	let "C=$C+1"
	if [ $LEN -gt "3" ]; 
		for ((N=$C+1; N<$C+6; N++))
			STR2=`awk NR==${N} $INPUTFILE`; 
#Call the USM to compare them.
			USM=`java -jar $USM_JAR -compare -str1="$line" -str2="$STR2"`
#Call NCD to compare them
#			NCD=`$NCD_COMMAND "$line" "$STR2"`
#NCD outputs the second string on the command line before the score; we need to remove it.
#			NCD=${NCD/$STR2}
#If the threshold similarity is greater than the specified value, output info to the output file.
			if [[ "$USM" < "$MINSIM" ]];
				echo "Found similarity"
				echo $line | sed -n 's/.*<owners><own_owner_id>\(.*\)<\/own_owner_id>.*/\1/p'>>$OUTFILE
				echo $STR2 | sed -n 's/.*<owners><own_owner_id>\(.*\)<\/own_owner_id>.*/\1/p'>>$OUTFILE
				echo "">>$OUTFILE

#Display the output file.
`gedit $OUTFILE`

echo "Done!"

This is successfully producing a list of candidate matches right now, outputting the ids of the two candidates followed by a blank line, for each candidate match.
