Mandatory arguments

  1. Inputs
    1. Input File: Path to the input file that contains the list of id's
    2. Number of lines per file: How many lines that you want to split the input file into. The number of output files corresponds tonumberof lines that you want to split into
    3. File_prefix: Prefix of the file that gets created (Default is "x")

Test run

The test data for this app is located at /iplant/home/shared/iplantcollaborative/example_data/OSG-RMTA/sra_id_list.txt
The 'sra_id_list.txt' file contains a list of 15 SRA id's, one SRA ID per line
  1. Inputs
    1. Input File: /iplant/home/shared/iplantcollaborative/example_data/OSG-RMTA/sra_id_list.txt
    2. Number of lines per file: 5
    3. File_prefix: osg_rmta_
  2. Outputs
    1. Output folder: OSG-RMTA-File-Split

After a successful run, you'll get 3 files each containing 5 SRA Id's with the prefix osg_rmta_ in OSG-RMTA-File-Split folder
