readSpot {arrayQuality}R Documentation

Extraction of measures from Spot (.spot) files.


This component reads a Spot file (.spot) and returns columns used for quality control.


readSpot(fnames = NULL, path= ".", galfile=NULL,DEBUG=FALSE, skip = 0, sep ="\t",quote="\"",controlId="ID", ...)


fnames A "character" string naming the input file.
path a "character" string representing the data directory. By default this is set to the current working directory (".").
