OK, I've got the picard.jar file in my directory but I cannot get the chmod +x Picard to work? My goal is to run Picard as though it is an executable program. Here are my series of commands, I'll ** where I start having issues:
$ mkdir picard $ cd picard $ wget https://github.com/broadinstitute/picard/releases/download/2.8.1/picard.jar $ java –jar /software/picard/picard.jar #!/bin/bash java -jar /software/picard/picard.jar $* **$ chmod +x Picard
Hear is the error message;
$chmod +x Picard chmod: cannot access 'Picard': No such file or directory
my next step would have been:
$sudo ln -s /software/picard/Picard /usr/local/bin
Again thinking I could run Picard as though it were an executable program:
Is there a better way to simply make Picard an executable?
