FUNCTION

[ Top | Next ]

ShiftOver moves a file to the right or to the left as many columns as you specify.

DESCRIPTION

[ Previous | Top | Next ]

What more can we say? You have text that you need to move to the right or left, and we provide the tool to do that. If you don't want to move the whole file, write out the part you want to shift as a temporary file, shift it over, and then include it in the original file.

EXAMPLE

[ Previous | Top | Next ]

Here is a session using ShiftOver to move the contents of the file gamma.seq over to the left so that the sequence data starts in the first column:


% shiftover

  SHIFTOVER what file ?  gamma.seq

  How many columns should "gamma.seq" be shifted (* -4 *) ?  -10

  What should I call the output file (* gamma.seq *) ? temp.txt

  495 lines shifted -10 columns

OUTPUT

Here is part of the output file (notice that the heading has been damaged by the shift):


NCE 1.0
