( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

A better way to count your bases would be to use tr.

knoppix@Microknoppix:~$ perl -Mstrict -wE ' > my $dna = q{CCATGNGTTATGNGTTACACGTNGTNTACG}; > my $b = length $dna; > my $A = $dna =~ tr{A}{}; > my $C = $dna =~ tr{C}{}; > my $G = $dna =~ tr{G}{}; > my $T = $dna =~ tr{T}{}; > my $e = $b - ( $A + $C + $G + $T ); > say qq{Number of bases - $b}; > say qq{A = $A; C = $C; G = $G; T = $T; err = $e};' Number of bases - 30 A = 5; C = 5; G = 7; T = 9; err = 4 knoppix@Microknoppix:~$

I hope this is helpful.

Cheers,

JohnGG

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
