Hi, could someone give me pointers/pseudocode for converting a tab-delimited file into a different format?
My data looks like this:
Name_1 TT XL_927799.1
Name_1 PA PA_392
Name_1 AT ZX_003039195.1
Name_2 TT XL_931313.1
Name_2 AT ZX_003043016.1
Name_3 TT XL_929616.1
Name_3 PA PA_5040
Name_3 PA PA_6336
Name_4 TT XL_928294.1
Name_4 PA PA_917
And I want to get it into this format:
PA TT AT
PA_392 XL_927799.1 ZX_003039195.1
The information in each row is separated by tabs and any field containing more than one eg Name_3 has two PA entries,
will produce both entries separated by a comma.
If there is no entry a blank should be left or I suppose "No corresponding entry"
