I have been unable to use xtract function from EDirect, as I get the following message simply by typing "xtract" into terminal:
Unable to locate xtract executable. Please execute the following: ftp-cp ftp.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov /entrez/entrezdirect xtract.Darwin.gz gunzip -f xtract.Darwin.gz chmod +x xtract.Darwin
I ran this, but it does not solve the problem. I have tried reinstalling EDirect and changing the xtract.Darwin file name to just xtract as well, but to no success. Any suggestions would be much appreciated.
