sand_compress_reads - compress sequence data
sand_compress_reads [-qcivh] [infile] [outfile]
sand_compress_reads reads sequence data in standard FASTA format,
and produces output in the compressed FASTA (cfa) format used by
the sand_filter_master(1) and sand_align_master(1).
If the output file is omitted, standard output is used.
if the input file is omitted, standard input is used.
After completing the compression, this program will output a summary
line of sequences and bytes compressed.
| -q ||Quiet mode: suppress summary line.
| -c ||Remove Celera read ids if data came from the Celera gatekeeper.
| -i ||Remove Celera read ids but leave internal ids if the data came from the Celera gatekeeper.
| -h ||Display version information.
| -v ||Show help text.
On success, returns zero. On failure, returns non-zero.
