I'm fairly new to BioPython and wanted to use the EMBOSS needle and water tool on Windows 7 64 bit platform using Anaconda Spyder python 2.7 IDE, after adding the BioPython library in the Libs folder. To do this, I'm trying to install EMBOSS first using Cygwin 64 terminal following the instructions.
I downloaded the EMBOSS package. After uncompressing the folder and going to the directory of the uncompressed folder and performing the following command:
./configure --without-x CFLAGS=-s
I receive the following error message:
$ ./configure --without-x CFLAGS=-s checking for gawk... gawk checking for icc... no checking for gcc... no checking for cc... no configure: error: in `/home/Khajag/EMBOSS-6.5.7/EMBOSS-6.5.7': configure: error: no acceptable C compiler found in $PATH See `config.log' for more details
What am I doing wrong here? Thanks.
