... I share this frustration with too, which is why I am writing this book. It's the book I wish I had when learning bioinformatics. It's an intermediate book (assumes readers know a bit of a scripting language), as this is what is lacking in current bioinformatics books. Many biologists learn a scripti ...

Answer: A: How To Discard Sequences Longer Than N Nucleotides ?
... Or, use bioawk, which deals with gzipped files and FASTQ natively. I recommend it more than rolling your own FASTQ parser each time.
