Sample Label is lost after NSORT

When data files are processed through NSORT, the sample label isn't retained in the header of the file. This label often contains important information such as sample concentration, temperature, etc. that can't always be conveniently be included in the file name. It would be desirable to have the sample label retained in the file header of the file written in NSORT.

NSORT will now write out the first two header lines of the first NSORTed file, that is the lowest q-value file (even if there is only one file). The two lines are now part of the combined file header, and are tagged "ORIGINAL..." and are the original creation date of the (.abs) file, and the sample label for the .abs file.

So inspecting the combined file in a text editor will now show the original sample label, rather than simply the file names of the combined files - which is of little use.

changed my mind, and the combined data files now have the file label (the 2nd line in the .ABS file) for each of the data files that were combined. One or two can be "none", and will be reported as such.

If you are combining previously combined data sets, I have no idea what will happen...

All of this effort is not too useful, since the XML output format is to be implemented soon...
