** Constructor Parameters:
*** int minReadLength - The minimum length that a base sequence must be for it to be valid.
*** int maxReportedErrors - The maximum number of errors that should be reported in detail before suppressing the errors.
*'''disableMessages''' : Disables cout messages. This does not include the Base Composition. Those are turned on/off based on a parameter to validateFastQFile.
** Parameters: NONE
** Return Value: NONE
*'''disableMessages''' : Enables cout messages. This does not include the Base Composition. Those are turned on/off based on a parameter to validateFastQFile.
** Parameters: NONE
** Return Value: NONE
*'''openFile''' : Open a FastQ File
** Parameters:
*** String filename - fastq file to be opened.

**** COLOR_SPACE - Color space only (0,1,2,3,.)
**** UNKNOWN - Base Decision on the first Raw Sequence Character (Default).
** Return Value

** Parameters:
*** String filename - fastq file to be validated.

**** BASE_SPACE - Bases only;
**** COLOR_SPACE - Color space only;
**** UNKNOWN - Base Decision on the first Raw Sequence Character
** Return Value
*** bool: true if there were no errors in the file, false otherwise.
** Notes:
*** Invalid information is printed to cout until maxReportedErrors is hit.
*'''readFastQSequence''' : Read a FastQ Sequence From the File
** Parameters: NONE
** Return Value

** Parameters:
*** int quitAfterErrorNum
**** Defaults to -1.
**** -1 indicates to not quit until the entire file has been read/validated.
**** 0 indicates to quit without reading/validating anything.
** Return Value: NONE
*'''Access last read Sequence Lines'''

== Libraries & Classes ==
*libcsg.a
**String (StringBasics) - String class for string operations
**BaseAsciiMap - Class for determining if a character is a valid base.
**InputFile - Class for opening and operating on a file.
== FastQValidator ==
The [[FastQ_Validator]] was built using the FastQFile class. More details on that program are at the supplied link.
 
 
== Use of the FastQFile class ==
Generally this class is used to read a fastq file and perform operations on the sequences.
Here is an example of how this would be done.
 
<source lang="cpp">
FastQFile fastQFile;
String filename = <your filename>;
// Open the fastqfile with the default UNKNOWN space type which will determine the
// base type from the first character in the sequence.
if(fastQFile.openFile(filename) != FASTQ_SUCCESS)
{
// Failed to open the specified file.
// Report the error and exit (handled by error).
error("Failed to open file: %s", filename.c_str());
return (<your return info to indicate failure>);
}
// Keep reading the file until there are no more fastq sequences to process.
while (!fastQFile.isEof())
{
// Read one sequence. This call will read all the lines for
// one sequence.
/////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////
// NOTE: It is up to you if you want to process only for success:
// if(readFastQSequence() == FASTQ_SUCCESS)
// or for FASTQ_SUCCESS and FASTQ_INVALID:
// if(readFastQSequence() != FASTQ_FAILURE)
// Do NOT try to process on a FASTQ_FAILURE
/////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////
if(fastQFile.readFastQSequence() == FastQFile::FASTQ_SUCCESS)
{
// The sequence is valid.
<Your Processing Here>
// For example if you want to print the lines of the sequence:
printf("The Sequence ID Line is: %s", fastQFile.mySequenceIdLine.c_str());
printf("The Sequence ID is: %s", fastQFile.mySequenceIdentifier.c_str());
printf("The Sequence Line is: %s", fastQFile.myRawSequence.c_str());
printf("The Plus Line is: %s", fastQFile.myPlusLine.c_str());
printf("The Quality String Line is: %s", fastQFile.myQualityString.c_str());
}
}
// Finished processing all of the sequences in the file.
// Close the input file.
fastQFile.closeFile();
return(<your return info>); // It is up to you to determine your return.
</source>

== Reading Sequence Assumptions ==
*The Sequence Identifier is separated by an optional comment by a " ".
*No validation is required on the optional comment field of the Sequence Identifier Line.
*The Sequence Identifier and the '+' Lines cannot wrap lines. The are each completely contained on one line.
*Raw Sequences and Quality Strings may wrap lines
*All lines are part of the Raw Sequence Line until a line that starts with a '+' is discovered.
*All lines are considered part of the quality string until at least the length of the associated raw sequence is hit (or the end of the file is reached). This is due to the fact that '@' is a valid quality character, so does not necessarily indicate the start of a Sequence Identifier Line.
 
 
== Additional Features ==
*Consumes gzipped and uncompressed text files transparently.
*Prints error messages for errors up to the configurable maximum number of reportable errors.
*[[FastQ Validator|Standalone Program for Validating a FastQ File]]
 
 
== Additional Wishlist - Not Implemented ==
*Add an option that would reject raw sequence and quality strings that wrap over multiple lines. It would only allow 1 line per raw sequence/quality string.
*Maybe report 2 types of information to the user: ERROR (critical failure) and WARNING (tolerable errors).
