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.

Download the jar file: keywords.jar

The following 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 *.fcs

The following will show the EXPERIMENT ID, Stim, and $Tot keywords for each fcs file. You may need to escape the '$' on linux command line shells.

java -jar keywords.jar -k "EXPERIMENT ID,Stim,$Tot" *.fcs

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:

java -jar keywords.jar --help
