I already know that
reformat.sh can be used to subsample but this is done by percentage. Is there a method to specify sub-sampling a fixed number of reads? I know the
reads=# flag exists but this seems to occur before the subsampling. I know if worst comes to worst I can randomly subsample 99% of the file and then run a second round of reformat using
reads= to get my fixed number, but a single step would be much easier.
