tabdelim_to_db — convert tab-delimited data into fsdb

Synopsis

tabdelim_to_db <source.tabdelim >target.fsdb

Description

Converts a tab-delimited data stream to Fsdb format.

The input is tab-delimited (not fsdb): the first row is taken to be the names of the columns; tabs separate columns.

The output is a fsdb file with a proper header and a tab field-separator.

This module also supports the standard fsdb options:

-d
Enable debugging output.
-i or --input InputSource
Read from InputSource, typically a file name, or "-" for standard input, or (if in Perl) a IO::Handle, Fsdb::IO or Fsdb::BoundedQueue objects.
-o or --output OutputDestination
Write to OutputDestination, typically a file name, or "-" for standard output, or (if in Perl) a IO::Handle, Fsdb::IO or Fsdb::BoundedQueue objects.
--autorun or --noautorun
By default, programs process automatically, but Fsdb::Filter objects in Perl do not run until you invoke the run() method. The "--(no)autorun" option controls that behavior within Perl.
--help
Show help.
--man
Show full manual.
