in reply to file header change

Try the following:

use strict; use warnings; my $i = 1; while (<>) { s/>\K.+/$i++/e; print; }

Output from your data:


Usage: perl inFile >outFile

As the fasta inFile is read line-by-line, the regex will substitute all past the > with the value of $i. The >outFile notation directs the printing to the file outFile.

Hope this helps!
