This tool compares two Family Finder FTDNA X chromosome raw data or X chromosome of autosomal 23andMe raw data files and provides the shared segments. It also provides an estimated common ancestor. It supports only build 37. Please use Build-36-to-37 tool to convert to 37 if you have build 36.

Prerequisites: Microsoft .Net Framework 4.0

 -nc [Match NoCall]     - Value can be true or false. Default is true
 -t  [Unit Type]        - Value can be cM for centimorgans or Mb for megabase,
                          Default is cM
 -er [Error Radius]     - Default is -1 (Disabled).
 -s  [SNP Threshold]    - Default is 150
 -cm [cM Threshold]     - Used when type is cM, Default is 1

 -o  [Output File]      - Send output to file. Default is console.
 -nt [Not Tested]       - Consider missing SNPs in input that exist in match
