Definitions and Concepts §

A set of match rules, or configuration, is comprised of: 

  • one or more primary keys, each of which may define 
  • one or more crosschecks that are run on matching records 
  • a list of preferences (to determine the 'preferred' record when more than one DB record matches) 
  • a list of crosscheck options (options that modify crosscheck behavior) 
  • a list of redirection rules ('redirect' records that match but fail certain crosschecks to a separate file) 
  • a list of synonyms (to improve crosscheck success by equivocating common strings and phrases)
