bc_get_info - Get information about a community file


  bc_get_info -input_files   my_communities.generic \
              -output_prefix my_info.txt            \
              -info_type     'members'


This script reads a file containing biological communities and retrieves basic information from it, such as the names of the communities it contains and their counts, the ID of members and their description, or the file format. The information is displayed on screen unless an output prefix is provided.


-if <input_files>... | -input_files <input_files>...

Input file containing the communities to process. When providing communities in a format that supports only one community per file (e.g. gaas), you can provide multiple input files.


-op <output_prefix> | -output_prefix <output_prefix>

Path and prefix for the output file. The output is displayed on screen if no output prefix is provided. Default: none

-it <info_type> | -info_type <info_type>

Type of information to return, either:

   'communities' for community names (in order of appearance) and their member count
   'members' for member IDs (in no specific order) and their description
   'format' for the file format

Default: info_type.default
