A few tools in the CLC Workbench are input modifying, meaning that when the tool is run from the Toolbox, it directly manipulates the input provided, instead of generating a new element as output. However, when such tools are used in a workflow context, they do generate a new element as output14.2.
Examples of such tools are:
- Find Open Reading Frames
- Gaussian Statistical Analysis
- Pfam Domain Search
- Proportion-based Statistical Analysis
- ... output14.2
- Prior to version 22.0, input modifying tools behaved the same when run from the Toolbox or in a workflow context. Workflow elements for such tools were marked in the Input channel and affected output channel by an M in a circle. There were restrictions for such tools in workflows in these older versions. Please see the manual for the version you are running for full details
