bint 0.1 Beta
Converts intensity text files to binary for fast subsetting
Extracting the data for individual SNP/CNV markers or individual samples was slow grep/awk'ing the text files exported from the genotyping run (e.g. Illumina final report files).
bint converts the text representation of the intensity float data to into a IEEE754 indexed binary file for rapid extraction of subsets of the data. In theory bint could be used for any large tables of float data.
