Comet parameter: skip_researching

  • This parameter is valid only when output_outfiles is set to 1 and each of output_pepxmlfile, output_sqtfile, and output_sqtstream are set to 0.
  • When .out files only are set to be exported, this parameter will look to see if an .out file already exists for each query spectrum. If so, it will not re-search that particular spectrum.
  • When set to 0, all spectra are re-searched. When set to 1, the search is skipped for those spectra where an .out file already exists.
  • Valid values are 0 and 1.
  • The default value is "1" if this parameter is missing.
