summary.seqs to evaluate fastq files

It would be great if I could use summary.seqs to evaluate fastq files from illumina output.

Have you tried running with summary.seqs and/or summary.qual?

I’m not sure if there’s a better, more streamlined way, but we’ve been dealing with Illumina data using the command to split the fastq into fasta and qual files then using the qual file to quality-check the fasta file using the trim.seqs command. Would you say this is the best way to deal with this sort of data at the moment?
