It looks like the only difference (please correct me if I'm wrong) from FCSTrans implementation is that flowCore uses it's own C++ implementation of biexponential_transform() in place of original C implementation in FCSTrans.

1) If FCSTransTransform() was meant to reproduce FCSTrans, why wasn't the original biexponential_transform() used?

2) Is it possible to find the original C source? I looked on Sourceforge:

but it's not found there.

Well, this was a bit before my arrival on the team for flowCore, but I think most of the answers to your questions can be found in this commit:

The original C implementation of biexponential_transform is there, along with its C++ replacement.

1) I believe Mike was just updating the legacy C code to hook it in to Rcpp::compileAttributes for auto-generating the R bindings. See other commits from right around that time:

2) Agreed, the sourceforge link (including yours SamGG), has the R source that calls biexponential_transform but not the C source for biexponential_transform. You can find that in the first commit listed.

Mike may have more insight, however.

Hope that helps, -Jake

Thanks for replying. Do you think the automatic width calculation inside FCSTransTransform() is helpful and often used?

The estimateLogicle function usually does a good job. Look for it in HowTo-flowCore
