data stored in molmovdb

Q:
I am interested in using some of the data stored in molmovdb, but I am unable to access the data. For example, from the page:

http://molmovdb.org/cgi-bin/sets.cgi

Once I click on automated set 2 the page returns “Sorry, no values in this range ( to ). Please try again!”

This happens on many (if not all) of the links. Is this data still available, or has the site been effectively decommissioned?

A:
this is something that is selected in lib/select.pm. Look at the explanation of the %selectors at the top of that file.

For example, for ‘auto’, the non-redundant automatic set, the selector uses the getNR function, which ultimately looks at this file to get the morph ID’s:

/usr/local/server/htdocs/tmp/auto.txt

You can similarly obtain the automatic set, which is not from a text file but rather an sql query.. you’ll see what I mean.
