Sib-pair Command: read plink

ClassData Declaration command
Nameread plink
Arguments <file name prefix> compress

Reads a PLINK .bed and ancillary files: <prefix>.bim, <prefix>.fam and <prefix>.bed. The "run" statement is bypassed, so this command reads in locus and pedigree data immediately. Minimal checking is done for pedigree and Mendelian errors. If the compress modifier is present, then the genotype data is stored in a 4 bits per genotype format internally.

The ASCII format PLINK .ped file can be read using the usual read pedigree command.
