read.bmapqtl {bim}R Documentation

Read and write options for WinQTL

Description

write.bmapqtl takes the options and priors in current workspace from bmapqtl.options and write it to a (user specified) text file. read.bmapqtl opens the file and read the options and priors in.

Usage

write.bmapqtl( dir = ".", nvalfile = "nval.dat" )
read.bmapqtl( dir = ".", nvalfile = "nval.dat" )

Arguments

dir directory containing files
nvalfile file name for options and priors.

Details

Bmapqtl used to operate as a separate external command using external file nval.dat, but was recently incorporated as a C dynamic library. However, read.bmapqtl and write.bmapqtl are still useful for WinQTL. For information on WinQTL visit http://statgen.ncsu.edu/qtlcart.

Value

There is no return value from write.bmapqtl.
read.bmapqtl returns a list for options and priors. To replace the options and priors in current workspace, use .bmapqtl.options <- read.bmapqtl().
