       complex -help


       complex is a command line program from EMBOSS (“the European Molecular Biology Open
       Software Suite”). It is part of the "Nucleic:Composition" command group(s).


   Input section
       -sequence seqall

       -lwin integer
           Default value: 100

       -step integer
           Displacement of the window over the sequence Default value: 5

       -jmin integer
           Default value: 4

       -jmax integer
           Default value: 6

   Advanced section
       -omnia toggle
           Calculate over a set of sequences Default value: N

       -sim integer
           Calculate the linguistic complexity by comparison with a number of simulations having
           a uniform distribution of bases

       -freq boolean
           Execute the simulation of a sequence based on the base frequency of the original
           sequence Default value: N

   Output section
       -print boolean
           Generate a file named UjTable containing the values of Uj for each word j in the real
           sequence(s) and in any simulated sequences Default value: N

       -outfile outfile

       -ujtablefile outfile
           Default value: complex.ujtable

       -outseq seqoutall
