Not sure if this is the issue but read.transcript.features() is deprecated and replaced by readTransciptFeatures() according to the project news page.

Another possibility is that you have another function with the same name.

Thanks for reply But again this error occurs obj=readTranscriptFeatures("final.bed") Error: could not find function "readTranscriptFeatures"

Why this "unused argument" error occur. Please guide me if there is any other way to sort this error.

To get proper help say which version of R and packages attached. Use sessionInfo() for this purpose.

Please provide, as suggested in the comments, information about your system, including what version of the package you have installed. Looking at the current version in github, and as mentioned in the comments, the function read.transcript.features() has been deprecated. However, the replacement function, readTranscriptFeatures() cannot be found in the methylKit package, but in the Bioconductor package genomation. Since in your posted error message you didn't get the deprecation message (see below), I am guessing you have an earlier version of the package. Probably it is better that you have the latest release version installed.

#' @rdname genomation-deprecated
#' @aliases read.transcript.features
#' @export
read.transcript.features<-function(){
  .Deprecated("genomation::readTranscriptFeatures")
  message("Use functions in genomation package from Bioconductor\n",
          "See vignette for examples.")}

Sir, I get this deprecated message when using below command > read.transcript.features function () { .Deprecated("genomation::readTranscriptFeatures") message("Use functions in genomation package from Bioconductor\n", "See vignette for examples.") } <environment: namespace:methylkit=""> I install genomation package also but same error occurs. Atlast it shows an unused argument error,

so please suggest me what next step i do.

Try using the whole path to your bed file.

Please, read the vignette in the methylKit package with instructions on how to use it. You need to call genomation::readTranscriptFeatures(), NOT the deprecated function read.transcript.features().
