output, path


Value is an ASCII text string describing an output filename.


  1. Relative or absolute path names can be used
  2. If the output file will be resident on a remote disk, a full UNC path name is usually required.
  3. Any file name allowed by an operating system can be used, although the extension "xml" is recommended.


X! TANDEM uses the XML language BIOML to record the output of a modelling session. Each of the peptides discovered are recorded, along with additional information, as specified by the other output parameters. The pathname given in this parameter sets the disk location where this output file may be found. The pathname can be altered automatically, when the output, path hashing parameter is set to yes.

X! TANDEM supports a number of different computer operating systems. Please consult your operating specific documentation for allowed names and illegal symbols before setting a file name yourself.
