GO::Utils::File - simply utility module for dealing with file parsing
GO::Utils::File provides a single exported function for retrieving the lines out of a file, that can be easily reused.
It will simply expect one gene name to exist per line. It should deal correctly with Mac and DOS line-endings, and will remove whitespace from the beginning and end of the names, then return the gene names as an array.
use GO::Utils::File qw(GenesFromFile); my @genes = GenesFromFile($filename);
GenesFromFile returns an array of gene names that were read from the supplied file. It assumes one name per line.
my @genes = GenesFromFile($filename);
