Hello,

I am using 2> and 1> to output the stderr and stdout to two files but when I use samtools to convert test.bam into test.sam, it seems that there is no output in the result file (test.sam).

samtools view -h test.bam > test.sam 2> bam2sam.stderr 1> bam2sam.stdout

Would you like to help me out?

Many thanks,

Tom

you use samtools to write to stdout to test.sam, but then you redirect stdout to another file. Not surprisingly, test.sam remains empty...
