grep for obo ontology files
#!/usr/bin/env perl
=head1 NAME
obogrep - grep obo entries with a string
B<obogrep> [B<--version> | [B<-?|-h|--help>] | [B<-g|--debug>] |
[B<-v|--invert-match>] | [B<-c|--count>] |query obofile
Grep-like command line program to explore ontology files in obo
The input is automatically detected. The default is a plain obo file.
If the filename ends in gz, the file is opened as gunzip. If there is
no filename, the input is assumed to come from STDIN, so that commands
can be piped together.
Matches are case insensitive.
obogrep adherens go.obo.txt.gz | obogrep cellular_component| less
obogrep junction go.obo.txt.gz | obogrep lar_comp | obogrep -v musc
=head2 Options
-v, --invert-match
Invert the sense of matching, to select non-matching lines. (-v
is specified by POSIX.)
-c, --count
Print out only the number of matching entries.
=head1 TODO
Does not take the obo file header into account.
Sometimes prints out spurious '[Term]' lines.
