The keywords.jar file attached to this page is a simple commandline tool to dump the keywords from a set of FCS files. Used together with findstr or grep this can be used to search a directory of fcs files.
java -jar keywords.jar *.fcs
This will show you all the 'interesting' keywords from all the files in the current directory (most of the $ keywords are hidden).
java -jar keywords.jar -k "EXPERIMENT ID,Stim,$Tot" *.fcs
will show the EXPERIMENT ID, Stim, and $Tot keywords for each fcs file. You may need to escape the '$' on unix command line shells. For tabular output suitable for import into excel or other tools, use the "-t" switch:
java -jar keywords.jar -t -k "EXPERIMENT ID,Stim,$Tot" *.fcs
To see a list of all options:
