sand_compress_reads - compress sequence data
sand_compress_reads [-qcivh] [infile] [outfile]
sand_compress_reads reads sequence data in standard FASTA format, and
produces output in the compressed FASTA (cfa) format used by the
sand_filter_master(1) and sand_align_master(1).
If the output file is omitted, standard output is used. if the
input file is omitted, standard input is used. After completing the
compression, this program will output a summary line of sequences and bytes
- Quiet mode: suppress summary line.

- Remove Celera read ids but leave internal ids if the data came from the
- Display version information.

On success, returns zero. On failure, returns non-zero.
