Finds the optimum scaled sequence of events from multiple files of
Open multiple tab-delimited ASCII TEXT files that contain the taxa
names (event names) and event data. A new optimum sequence of events is
calculated each time a file is added.
The event data must be organized into a file with at least two columns
Taxa name[tab]event (depth or rank)
1) The first column must contain taxa names, event names or id numbers.
2) The second column must contain event data.
This must be a number, depth or sequential rank
3) The taxa names must match exactly the events to be assigned to the
The taxa name is used to make a unique identification.
Spelling must be exact.
4) Several text filters allow for stripping control characters,
extraneous spaces and matching different cases.
5) Save results to a file (or copy to the clipboard):
The optimum sequence is formatted as:
Taxa name[tab]rank ratio[tab]occurrences
Or save scores for an on-going project as:
Well list (of wells included so far, followed by)
The optimum sequence is defined when the taxa are sorted by the rank
