       cmconvert - convert Infernal covariance model files


       cmconvert [options] <cmfile>


       The  cmconvert  utility  converts  an  input  covariance  model file to different Infernal

       By default, the input CM file can be any CM file created by Infernal version 1.0 or later;
       the  output  CM  file is a current Infernal format. Files from versions older than version
       1.0 cannot be converted.

       <cmfile> may be '-' (dash), which means reading this input from stdin rather than a file.


       -h     Help; print a brief reminder of command line usage and all available options.

       -a     Output profiles in ASCII text format. This is the default.

       -b     Output profiles in binary format.

       -1     Output in legacy Infernal1 (Infernal v1.0 through v1.0.2) ASCII text format. Due to
              important changes between version v1.0.2 and v1.1, any E-value statistic parameters
              calculated by cmcalibrate in <cmfile> will not be written to the  converted  output

              Do  not  output a CM file. Instead, output one maximum likelihood p7 HMM built from
              each CM in <cmfile> in HMMER3 ASCII text format. The HMM will have been constructed
              to  be as similar as possible to the CM, without modeling secondary structure. This
              option could be useful for comparative studies of Infernal and HMMER3.

       --fhmm Do not output a CM file. Instead, output the filter p7 HMM for each CM in  <cmfile>
              in HMMER3 ASCII text format.
