Singleton Remover CSV allows users to browse and select a single .csv file for singleton removal analysis. The analysis process assumes that the first column of the .csv file contains a set of valid IDs and that the second column contains a larger set of IDs. The IDs in the second column are iterated through and compared with the valid IDs in the first column. Matches are stored, while mismatches are ignored. Any additional columns beyond the IDs are stored along with matches, thus allowing for a variety of datasets to be analyzed so long as the first two columns contain IDs for comparison. Once all IDs have been compared, the stored matches are written to a .csv file with a user-specified name and location.
The SingletonRemoverCSV.air program may be installed using Adobe Air Application Installer. Alternatively, SingletonRemoverCSV_v0-3.fla allows the program to be modified and compiled directly from Flash CS5 or higher.
Once the program is launched, follow these steps.
- Click on the button. A file selection window will appear.
- Select a .csv file for analysis.
- The .csv file will be loaded and the analysis will begin.
- Once the file has finished processing, a save window will appear.
- Choose a filename and location, then save to output your processed .csv file.
Note: Depending on the size of the file, it may take up to a few minutes to complete the analysis.
Note: You may use the included testData.csv file to test the program and see how it works.
