GORROW is a source command that returns a single row of data based on the input parameters.
To use GORROW, you define the chromosome, start position and end position. This command is a tool similar to the SQL command
SELECT * FROM DUAL when working with Oracle database. It is useful when you need to perform a calculation and you want to test the calculation out on a single row before applying the calculation as a pipe step in a larger query with an actual source.
The GORROW command is particular useful when testing out a calculated step in a query.
GORROW chromosome,start_position,stop_position GORROW chromosome,position
The following example creates a row and waits 1000 milliseconds. Useful for debugging purposes.
GORROW chr1,1,1 | WAIT 1000
chrom bpStart bpStop chr1 1 1
The below query creates a row with a position value of 10.
chrom pos chr1 10
