I'm new to plink, I read the plink online instruction that plink will uncompress gz file automatically, but when I use plink:
./plink --bfile mydata
it gives me the following error:
ERROR: No file [ mydata.fam ] exists.
Only when I uncompress my .fam .bim .bed files, the command works.
I am very confused because the dataset is large and uncompress them takes up many space on my mac. Can anyone tell my why my plink does not uncompress gz files?
