SEP report reproducibility test guideline

Requirement for repro test

If you have more complex reproducing strategies rather than typing make. You need to include a readme file or put the instructions at the top of make file as comment.

The quality of reproducibility will be evaluated in five aspects:

1. All Code compiles on SEP computing environment

2. flow for CR figures is present in makefile

3. ER figures can be reproduced

4. Makefile is written in a clear/concise/neat manner

5. CR figures can be reproduced.

The last two are optional, but rest are mandatory(everyone needs to pass in order to pass the test). Also we will check that proper reproducibility label are assigned to each figures.

makefile format

It is not rare that your makefile will have dozens of entries. We are not able to check all of these. Therefore, we require the makefile to have several common targets, i.e

1. make burn; burn all the figures in the paper.

2. make clean; burn all figures, and also clean the executables and the intermediate result file (.H).

3. make NR; build NR figures; (this could be a simple copy from a backup folder).

4. make ER; build ER figures

5. make CR; build CR figures

Again, you can back up your figures to a separate folder, but it is not OK to just copy them back to directory Fig in those figures making rules.


1. What is the rule of thumb of choosing NR/ER/CR labels for a plot?

You should have known it while you were writing the report. Please refer to the up-to-date instructions @ vostok:/wrk/sep147/Adm/preface.tex for details.

2. Do I need to include all the .H files I used in the figures in the local directory?

You are not forbidden from doing that just for backup purpose. However, your makefile flows for building these figures should start from the raw input data file, perform the computations and then generate the figures. The only exception is plotting the raw data, since no computation needs to be performed. Simply grabbing backed-up intermediate results (.H files) and plotting them is not considered a valid reproducible flow, unless it is NR.

3. My makefile rules take a long time to compute, how can I test them more efficiently?

'-n' option in Make would show the user nominally all the cmds GNUmake would execute for this target, but without actually executing them. e.g make -n target.H rather than make target1.H. This would help you diagnose many of the mistakes you might have in your make file in advance. For example, a filename typo in the dependence list.


1. put a dash '-' at the beginning of the command, if you want Make to continue the flow in case of an error. For eg.

  - mkdir bin
  make bin/exe.x
