For many this will be very basic, but for me it's driving me nuts!
I have a tab-delimited header:
sampleA sampleB sampleC
Depending on the number of samples I have, I want to make a new header as such:
For 3 samples:
sampleA sampleB sampleC output001 output002 output003
For 4 samples:
sampleA sampleB sampleC sampleD output001 output002 output003 output004
and so on...
I can duplicate the initial header to get the correct number of columns:
paste header header
However, I want new column names.. and that's where I'm stuck....
