Rmap recognizes three types of files. The first is the Rmap.out format that Rmap itself creates. The second is a special format defined in the example file map.inp included in the distribution. The third format is the output of MAPMAKER. If the input file is a MAPMAKER output file, Rmap translates this file into its own format. If the input file is already in the correct format, Rmap will output it dependant upon the flag given to the -g option. The units of intermarker distances will be in centiMorgans in the output.
