I’m using an “Input File” node to read in a FASTA (text) file for a sequence alignment node, and now I have found that I also need to read the file using a different node (“Load Text Files”, followed by “FASTA Sequence Extractor”) at a different point in my workflow. Therefore I’m looking to extract the file path and name from “Input File” so I can pass it on as a variable to “Load Text Files”. I can’t seem to find a way to do this though as “Input File” does not create any flow variables from the specified input file.
However if I look at “Model Content” - under the output from Input File - I do see “Model Content” -> “child-0” -> “uri [xstring] ->” which starts with “file:/” and has the path and name of the file I specified. Is there a way I can extract this to a flow variable?
