Is there a way to edit the start condition (and stop condition) in Split for multiple input files at one time?


Nathan Nov 19, 2020 08:36 AM

For example, I have four input files from table-based data loggers containing timestamps in the first column followed by additional data columns. I need to retrieve data for the same time period from each input file and place it in the output file.  Columns in the output file would be:

timestamp,C3_IF1,C4_IF2,C5_IF3,C3_IF4

where C2_IF1 is Column #2 in input file #1, C4_IF2 is Column #4 in input file #2, etc.

I have a parameter file in split that is set up to do this. However, I have to edit the start condition and stop condition for each input file individually. This just creates a lot of opportunity for error, espically when we need to repeat this task for many different start and stop times.  Is there a way to edit the start and stop conditions for all input files at a single time?  I'm also open for suggestions on how to automate this proceedure, but I don't have experiance automating proceedures with split.
