Define routing rules


Define routing rules for use in create_mst_test





routing rules defined using a a dot-like syntax, read –+ as an arrow and [:] as a range of score to move to the next stage


Each scoring rule in '...' defines one or more routing rules together making up a booklet. For example, 'route1 = a[0:5] –+ d[9:15] –+ f' means a start at module 'a', continue to module 'd' when the score on 'a' is between 0 and 5 (inclusive) and continue to 'g' when the score on modules 'a + b' is between 0 and 8 (for 'All' routing) or the score on just module 'b' is between 0 and 8 (for 'Last' routing). 'route1' becomes the id of the specific path or booklet, which must be supplied with the data later.

A routing design for a linear (non-multistage) booklet can simply be entered as mst_rules(my_booklet = my_single_module).
