Used in: gor/nor


The COLTYPE command prefixes the column type to the cell in the stream (keeping the value of the cell within parentheses). This can be helpful when debugging issues in CALC expressions.

This command does not take any parameters.


gor ... | COLTYPE


gor #dbsnp# | CALC data 'this is a test' | COLTYPE | TOP 10

The above command will output the first ten rows of the #dbsnp# table with the cells prefixed with the column type.
