Web Documentation for FileMerger


Version of the tool that generated this parameters file.
Input file type (default: determined from file extension or content)
Store the original filename in each feature using meta value "file_origin" (for featureXML and consensusXML only).
Name of log file (created only when specified)
Sets the debug level
Sets the number of threads allowed to be used by the TOPP tool
Disables progress logging to command line
Overwrite tool specific checks.
Enables the test mode (needed for internal use only)
The amount of gap (in seconds) to insert between the RT ranges of different input files. RT concatenation is enabled if a value > 0 is set.
Assign retention times automatically (integers starting at 1)
List of custom retention times that are assigned to the files. The number of given retention times must be equal to the number of input files.
Try to guess the retention time of a file based on the filename. This option is useful for merging DTA files, where filenames should contain the string 'rt' directly followed by a floating point number, e.g. 'my_spectrum_rt2795.15.dta'
If 1 or higher, this number is assigned to spectra as the MS level. This option is useful for DTA files which do not contain MS level information.

Input Ports

Input files separated by blank [mzData,mzXML,mzML,dta,dta2d,mgf,featureXML,consensusXML,fid,traML,FASTA]

Output Ports

Output file [mzML,featureXML,consensusXML,traML]
Output of retention time transformations that were applied to the input files to produce non-overlapping RT ranges. If used, one output file per input file is required. [trafoXML,Inactive]


FileMerger Std Output
