Comet parameter: num_output_lines

  • This parameter controls the number of search result hits (peptides) that are reported for each spectrum query.
  • If you are only interested in seeing one top hit each per query, set this value to 1.
  • This parameter value cannot be larger than the value entered for "num_results" which itself is limited to a maximum value of 100.
  • Valid values are any positive integer 1 or greater.
  • If a value less than 1 is entered, this parameter is set to 1.
  • The default value is "5" if this parameter is missing.
