The real power here is that TAB2GC is a CMS application that takes a CMS file as input and produces a CMS file as output. That CMS input file could have been built by any CMS application that scrapes up numbers somehow from somewhere. Consider for example this:
- MONWRITE file + Perfkit = a Perfkit listing
- Perfkit listing + a custom scraper = a TAB2GC input file
- TAB2GC input file + TAB2GC EXEC = an HTML file
- HTML file + a CMS-based web server = your charts
All of that can be done without manual intervention. No more cutting and pasting CMS-born numbers into a spreadsheet just so you can make a chart of them. Everything you need done can be done on CMS.
