Hi everyone!

I am new in Biostars! I have problems with stacks to run the pipeline ref_map.pl. I run my code:

ref_map.pl -o home/mdominguez/ref_map/prueba_md/results -m 3 -b 1 -s M1.sorted.bam -s M2.sorted.bam -s M3.sorted.bam -s M4.sorted.bam -s M5.sorted.bam -s M6.sorted.bam -s M7.sorted.bam -s M8.sorted.bam -s M9.sorted.bam -s M10.sorted.bam -s M11.sorted.bam -s M12.sorted.bam -s M13.sorted.bam -s M14.sorted.bam -s M15.sorted.bam -s M16.sorted.bam -s M17.sorted.bam -s M18.sorted.bam -s M19.sorted.bam -s M20.sorted.bam -s M21.sorted.bam -s M22.sorted.bam -s M23.sorted.bam -s M24.sorted.bam  -s M25.sorted.bam -s M26.sorted.bam -S

And then I received this message: Unable to open log file 'home/mdominguez/ref_map/prueba_md/ref_map.log'; No such file or directory

Anyone have an idea about this kind of error?

Many thanks!!

It depends in which directory you are when running this command, and also if you are trying to create a directory.

Most likely you are forgetting to put / in front of home so it should be:

-o /home/mdominguez/ref_map/prueba_md/results

Or if you want to actually store your output in a sub-directory called home/mdominguez/ref_map/prueba_md that is inside your present directory, before entering your command you need to do:

mkdir -p home/mdominguez/ref_map/prueba_md

Chances are you are simply forgetting to type /.
