- FMPro2ace.perl - This program converts malaria chromosome information, as recorded by the Walter and Eliza Hall Institute on the MacIntosh application, File Maker Pro, to ACE files for the MalDB.
The method of tranferring data to a UNIX machine, involves exporting the data, whilst in the File Maker Pro application, to a DIF file (one of various text files one can export File Maker Pro data as). Then openning the DIF file in the application, Word, and saving it as a text file with newlines (This gets rid of unwanted control characters). And finally transferring the file to a UNIX machine using the Fetch application of MacIntosh.
The program takes as it's argument, the transferred DIF file. It then produces 14 .ace files, each pertaining to the 14 chromosomes of malaria.
