Finnigan::SampleInfo -- a decoder for SampleInfo, the primary file index structure
use Finnigan; my $rh = Finnigan::RunHeader->decode(\*INPUT, $version); my $si = $rh->sample_info; # calls Finnigan::SampleInfo->decode say $si->first_scan; say $si->last_scan; say $si->tot_ion_current; my $scan_index_addr = $si->scan_index_addr; . . .
SampleInfo is a static (fixed-size) binary preamble to RunHeader containing data stream lengths and addresses, as well as some unidentified data. All data streams in the file, except for the list of ScanHeader records and TrailerScanEvent stream have their addresses stored in SampleInfo.
The addresses of the ScanHeader and TrailerScanEvent streams are stored in the parent structure, RunHeader.
It appears as though RunHeader is a recently introduced wrapper around the older SampleInfo structure.
