Housekeeping processing

In this processing stage the task hkgtigen is run. This stage can be switched off by setting the parameter runhkgtigen to false.

If the output of hkgtigen is found on disk, the task is not run again.

hkgtigen creates a GTI file based on the selectlib conditions based on the contents of the housekeeping files. The housekeeping GTI is used together with any other external GTI file specified (see 3.5).

Additional parameters related to this processing stage are withparameters, parameters, except, withoverrideparameters, and overrideparameters. Normally hkgtigen is driven by the contents of the CCF, and there is no need to make use of these additional parameters.
