I'm trying to do a bedtools compare on a couple of bed files. One of the bed files keeps throwing this error:
Error: unable to open file or unable to determine types for file
My file is as follows:
chr1 810865 3198369 chr1 844270 845356 chr1 882432 10373009 chr1 1104962 1173985 chr1 2616309 2617058 chr1 3056425 3245459 chr1 4704545 5447621
I have checked that the start position is before the end position. I have added and removed column headings chrom, "start" and "end" (also tried 'chromStart' and 'chromEnd'. But no joy. I had originally created this bed file from a tab delimited file from R. Does anyone know what has gone wrong?
