One-liners with GNU tools


  • Toolbox:
    • AWK
    • grep
    • sed
    • cut
    • tr
    • wc


  • Skip a subset of successive lines:
for i in {1..10}; do echo $i; done | sed 3,6d


  • Extract a subset of successive lines:
for i in {1..20}; do echo $i; done | sed -n 3,5p


  • Use absolute values:
for i in {-5..5}; do echo $i; done | awk 'function abs(x){return (((x < 0.0) ? -x : x) + 0.0)} {print abs($1)}'


awk 'BEGIN{RS=">"} {if(NF==0)next; split($0,a,"\n"); printf "@"a[1]"\n"a[2]"\n+\n"; \
for(i=1;i<=length(a[2]);i++)printf "}"; printf"\n"}' probes.fa > probes.fq
