I used local
blastn on a transcriptome of XLOC/TCONS lines from a prior mapping job. The resulting file is over 8GB, and so I attempted to use
split on the text file using the
-p Query\= pattern filter. It worked, but, when split got to xzz, it stopped, and spit out
split: too many files
I found another closed thread where someone had a similar issue and using csplit was suggested, which I tried, but it seems to just split on the first instance of
Query=, not all instances, so I get the header of the file and then the rest of the 8gb file in two resulting xx00 and xx01 files. This is not ideal.
$ csplit blastoutlocal.txt /Query=/ 281 8151460629
Is there a version of split that can handle more than 676 output files (xaa-xzz)?
