Reading multiple files
ASReml can read data from multiple files provided
the files have the same layout. The file specified as the data file
can contain lines of the form
where filename is the (path)name of the data subfile
n is an optional qualifier indicating that the first
n lines of the subfile are to be skipped.
After reading each subfile, input reverts to the primary data file.
Typically, the primary data file will just contain
statements identifying the subfiles to include.
For example, you may have data from a series of related experiments
in separate data files for individual analysis.
The data file for the subsequent combined analysis would then
just contain a set of
statements to specify
which experiments were being combined.
If the subfiles have CSV format, they should all have it and the
should be declared
on the primary datafile line.
