TestEcho - Erlang test problem for Echo.

=============================================

-----------------------------------
Installation and Running (on Linux)
-----------------------------------
1. Edit ./src/test_echo.app.src, set these env variables:
 - docroot - where test_echo .yaws files can be found (default - "../priv/docroot", i.e. TestEcho/priv/docroot seen from TestEcho/ebin);
 - host - web-server IP (default - {0,0,0,0}, i.e. localhost);
 - port - free port for web server (default 8081);
 - server_name - unique YAWS embedded web-server name (default - "test_echo").
2. Run ./compile.
3. Run ./run.
4. In Erl shell start application:
application:start(test_echo).
5. If all {ok}, the site will be available at host:port page.

By default, ./run script searches the YAWS beams in /usr/local/lib/yaws and /usr/lib/yaws. If you have different YAWS settings, edit paths in file ./ebin/st. Yaws started in embedded mode.

Alternatively, test_echo application can be started from ./ebin directory:

cd ./ebin
erl -pa <path/to/yaws/beams>
erl> test_echo_sup:start().  % more correct: application:start(test_echo).

-----------------
Program structure
-----------------

Program has 3 parts: site files, servers' code and modules' code. Dependence:
Site -> (Supervised Servers) -> Modules

Servers:
- ehtml_server - produces ehtml-tuples (tables for datalists, datetime inputs etc.). To add new datalist format, write appropriate ehtml_server:make_table_row() function. (It could be improved by using hi-order functions actually).
- security_server - stores and processes data.
- query_process_server - processes YAWS GET and POST queries in complex cases (datetime extracting).

Modules:
- mochinum - only for float-value formatting.
- test_data - test functions and hardcoded test data, including test_echo.pdf tables (supplemented by my data for testing convenience).
- data_collection - functions to process data, including test_echo.pdf scale-depended collecting. (It was prototyped in Haskell, see .prototypes folder.)
- date_manipulation - functions to support data_collection module. (It  prototyped too.)
- test_echo, test_echo_app, test_echo_sup - application files.

Site:
- index.yaws - Index page
- data_collect.yaws - Filter and Scale input form for collecting data.
- data_collect_output.yaws - Results of collecting data.
- data_input.yaws - Security transactions input form.
- data_process.yaws - Security transactions process after data_input.yaws.
- data_manipulate.yaws - Clearing data; loading hardcoded test data only or merging the one.
- data_output.yaws - Showing data.
- data_test.yaws - Some testing procedures for security_server and modules.

WARNING
-------
There are some strange behaviour with browser cache. Sometimes it crashes inputed data or provides invalid data to servers. Probably, it could be removed by carefully writed site, some yaws/browser settings or more safe module functions, but this is another problem, not for now.
Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
