Incremental files between wdl-calls


inspired by a post from @Vzzarr I would like to ask if it would be possible to write only the changes (deltas) to a file as an output (like the way common backup-solutions do)? The aim is to reduce time/space/operations for writing the intermediate files during a wdl-workflow.

As an example think of the pre-processing part of the pipeline, which creating several bam-files, but every bam-files changes only a bit in every step, seen by the level of information.

    Hi @kshakir,

    thanx for the answer I will try out the NIO-features.

    Sry for the late response...but the notifications section isn't working for me probably since the update of the forum.

    Greetings EADG
