matchms.exporting.save_as_msp.save_as_msp(spectrums: List[Spectrum], filename: str, write_peak_comments: bool = True, mode: str = 'a', style: str = 'matchms')[source]

Save spectrum(s) as msp file.

losses of spectrum will not be saved.

# Create dummy spectrum

# Write spectrum to test file
save_as_msp(spectrum, "test.msp")
  • spectrums – Expected input are match.Spectrum.Spectrum() objects.

  • filename – Provide filename to save spectrum(s).

  • write_peak_comments – Writes peak comments to individual peaks after the respective mz/intensity pair when set to True. Default is True.

  • mode – Mode on how to write to file. One of [“w”, “a”] (write/append). Default is append.

  • style – Converts the keys to required Export style. One of [“massbank”, “nist”, “riken”, “gnps”]. Default is “matchms”
