Default script for checking barcode compatibility

Hi everyone,

a colleague of mine wrote a script that checks the compatibility of barcodes used in different sample prep kits for Illumina (Truseq LT/HT, Nextera, Nugen) - for the case when we need to pool samples made with different kits on one Hiseq lane or Miseq/Nextseq run. (We consider as compatible those barcodes that have edit distance greater or equal to 3.)
I find it very helpful so I took the liberty to post the link - http://makarich.fbb.msu.ru/shelkmike...check_eng.html
I hope, it will be useful for many other Illumina users.

(I know that Illumina does not support pooling different libraries, e.g. Nextera and Truseq or Truseq LT and Truseq HT, but we do this and this works fine).
