Usage

arrangeCelFilesByChipType(pathnames=list.files(pattern = "[.](cel|CEL)$"),
  path="celFiles/", aliases=NULL, ...)

Arguments

pathnames

A character vector of CEL pathnames to be moved.

path

A character string specifying the root output directory, which in turn will contain chip-type subdirectories. All directories will be created, if missing.

aliases

A named character string with chip type aliases. For instance, aliases=c("Focus"="HG-Focus") will treat a CEL file with chiptype label 'Focus' (early-access name) as if it was 'HG-Focus' (official name).

...

Not used.

Value

Returns (invisibly) a named character vector of the new pathnames with the chip types as the names. Files that could not be moved or where not valid CEL files are set to missing values.
