This mode splits a file in compact reads format into one or more files. It is implemented by edu.cornell.med.icb.goby.modes.SplitCompactReadsMode.java.
The following options are available in this mode
|input||yes||Name of the compact input file.|
|output||yes||Name of the compact output output.|
|start-position||yes||The start position for the split, which should be number of bytes into the file to start the split. The split will actually start at the first record on or after start-position.|
|end-position||yes||The end position for the split, which should be number of bytes into the file to end the split. The split will actually end at the end of the record on or after end-position.|
|sequence-per-chunk||no||The number of sequences that will be written in each compressed chunk. Default is suitable for very many short sequences. Reduce to a few sequences per chunk if each sequence is very large.|
