Result manager

The comparison functions within SIP produce "results" which are plotted to the sip plot ( see section Sip plot). The Result Manager provides a mechanism to interrogate these results.

The Result Manager can be accessed via the "Results manager" command in the view menu on either the main menu or the menu bar of the sip plot. Alternatively the results can be accessed as a menu attached to the "Results" option on the sip plot menu bar. In this case the individual results are written in the same colour as the plots they refer to:

Each result is listed in the window containing the time the result was created, the name of the function which created the result and the result number. The number is simply a unique identifier to help distinguish between two results produced by the same function. The results are listed in time order, the oldest at the top.

Each item in the list is consuming memory on your computer. Running functions over and over again without removing the previous results will slow down your machine and it will, eventually, run out of memory. Removing items from the list solves this.

Pressing the right mouse button over an listed item will display a popup menu of operations to perform on this result. Although the exact operations available vary depending on the comparison function which produced the result, there will always be "Remove" which will delete this result. The available operations are listed with the comparison functions.
