I'm trying to use GapFiller (http://www.baseclear.com/genomics/bioinformatics/basetools/gapfiller) for closing gaps in the scaffold resulted from transcriptome assembly. But, it fail to run. Based on its manual, I typed ./GapFiller that the following error appeared:
-bash: ./GapFiller.pl: /usr/bin/perl^M: bad interpreter: No such file or directory
And with the command of perl GapFiller.pl the error is below:
Can't locate getopts.pl in @INC (@INC contains: /etc/perl /usr/local/lib/perl/5.18.2 /usr/local/share/perl/5.18.2 /usr/lib/perl5 /usr/share/perl5 /usr/lib/perl/5.18 /usr/share/perl/5.18 /usr/local/lib/site_perl .) at GapFiller.pl line 51.
As far as I read the manual of software, we have to just type ./GapFiller.pl or perl GapFiller. There is no make file or configure file in the package. Could anybody please let me know how to solve the error?
