output, sort results by
The value of this parameter is an ASCII string, with two possible values: protein or spectrum.
When this value is set to spectrum, the output file contains the results of a modelling session in the same order as the spectra were recorded in the original spectra file. Each result group is numbered with the ordinal position of the spectrum, or the spectrum number obtained from the original file (if available).
When this value is set to protein, the output file contains the results of a modelling session listed according to a particular spectrum's corresponding peptide's position in the most likely protein sequence, starting at the N-terminus of the protein. All of the peptides associated with a particular protein are list sequentially. The most likely protein in the data set is listed first, with others listed in order of descending confidence of assignment.
