Good morning! I am trying to install PLINK in order to run the command "plink". I was following the tutorial at this link (https://willtownes.github.io/blog/2014/12/09/path-tutorial/#:~:text=Go%20to%20the%20plink%20website,just%20double%20click%20on%20it.&text=Now%20close%20the%20terminal%20and,window%20in%20an%20arbitrary%20directory.) but, although I have correctly installed Homebrew, when I try to run this code (brew tap homebrew/science) the terminal gives me back this error:

"Error: homebrew/science was deprecated. This tap is now empty and all its contents were either deleted or migrated".

If anybody could solve me this conundrum i would be very grate!

P.S: does anybody know where I can download some .map and .ped file as an example?

Try conda (LINK) instead. Once you install conda

conda create -n plink plink

Thank you! But nonetheless I don't manage to launch the command "conda", although I have correctly installed Miniconda

I think this can happen if you didn't say "Yes" to conda init.

Where did you installed your conda? I think you might have installed it in your home directory or current directory during installation (it depends on the prefix installation that you've provided during installation). If you find the folder the executable conda is inside that folder.

Assuming that your conda installation is in your home directory and you've installed version 3, this might be your path to the executable: ~/miniconda3/condabin/conda
