Overview of the dumpRefInfo function of bamUtil

The dumpRefInfo option on the bamUtil executable prints the SAM/BAM file's reference information.

Parameters

    Required Parameters:
        --in               : the SAM/BAM file to be read
    Optional Parameters:
        --noeof            : do not expect an EOF block on a bam file.
        --printRecordRefs  : print the reference information for the records in the file (grouped by reference).
        --params           : print the parameter settings


printRecordRefs outputs the id, the name, and the number of records with that id/name in the SAM/BAM file. Example:

	Ref ID: 0	Ref Name: 1	NumRecs: 4

Ref ID: -1 indicates unmapped (Ref Name will be *)

Usage

./bam dumpRefInfo --in <inputFilename> [--noeof] [--printRecordRefs] [--params]

Return Value

  • 0: the file was processed successfully.
  • non-0: the file was not processed successfully.
