pybedtools.bedtool.BedTool.reldist

BedTool.reldist(*args, **kwargs)[source]

If detail=False, then return a dictionary with keys (reldist, count, total, fraction), which is the summary of the bedtools reldist.

Otherwise return a BedTool, with the relative distance for each interval in A in the last column.

For convenience, the file or stream this BedTool points to is implicitly passed as the -a argument to reldist
