NAME

fastaq_chunker - Splits sequences into equal sized chunks

DESCRIPTION

usage: fastaq_chunker [options] <infile> <out> <chunk size> <tolerance>
Splits a multi sequence file into separate files. Splits sequences into chunks of a fixed size. Aims for chunk_size chunks in each file, but allows a little extra, so chunk can be up to (chunk_size + tolerance), to prevent tiny chunks made from the ends of sequences

positional arguments:

infile
Name of input file to be split
out
Prefix of output file. If --onefile used, then name of single output file
chunk_size
Size of each chunk
tolerance
Tolerance allowed in chunk size

optional arguments:

-h, --help
show this help message and exit
--onefile
Output all the sequences in one file
--skip_all_Ns
Do not output any sequence that consists of all Ns
