get_entity_Annotation ^

An annotation is a comment attached to a feature. Annotations are used to track the history of a feature's functional assignments and any related issues. The key is the feature ID followed by a colon and a complemented ten-digit sequence number.


    get_entity_Annotation -a < ids > table.with.fields.added

would read in a file of ids and add a column for each filed in the entity.

The standard input should be a tab-separated table (i.e., each line is a tab-separated set of fields). Normally, the last field in each line would contain the id. If some other column contains the id, use

    -c N

where N is the column (from 1) that contains the id.

This is a pipe command. The input is taken from the standard input, and the output is to the standard output.
