bp_dbsplit - script to split an input set of database(s) into smaller pieces


bp_dbsplit.PLS --size 50 [-i inputfile] [-if inputformat] [-of outputformat]
[--prefix outputprefix] [ < file1 file 2 OR file1 file2]


This script will take as input a list of filenames or a single file or from STDIN a
sequence database and split the database into separate files of X numbers of sequences.
You specify X with the "--size/-s" parameter. The input and output sequence format is any
that is supported by bioperl (fasta,embl,genbank,gcg, swissprot, etc).

You can specify the input data either as a single file with -i filename, or as a single
file as an argument like

% bp_dbsplit file1 file2

or as a list of sequence data with

% cat file1 file2 file3 | bp_dbsplit

You'll want to use the "--prefix" to specify what the output prefix will be.
