spray program

Documentation for the spray program is below, with links to related programs in the "see also" section.

   spray: spray a genome with random locations

   spray(sprayp: in, drops: out, output: out)


   drops:  n random numbers between 1 and G.

   sprayp:  parameters to control the program.  The file must contain the
      following parameters, one per line:

      parameterversion: The version number of the program.  This allows the
         user to be warned if an old parameter file is used.

      G (integer): size of the genome

      n (integer): number of sites to spray onto the genome.


   For a genome of G bases, place n sites randomly on the genome.
   This is represented by a set of n numbers in the drops file.  Of
   course if one runs this through diffint and then genhis, the result
   should be a Poisson distribution.

   example parameter file:  sprayp

   Compute differences of sequential integers:  difint.p

   Plot a series of numbers as a histogram:  genhis.p

   Compute the poisson directly:  poisson.p
