Hi all,

I am using Ubuntu and I cannot start the vcftools/bin/vcf-fix-ploidy perl function. It says:

Can't locate Vcf.pm in @INC (@INC contains:

/etc/perl /usr/local/lib/perl/5.10.1 /usr/local/share/perl/5.10.1 /usr/lib/perl5 /usr/share/perl5 /usr/lib/perl/5.10 /usr/share/perl/5.10 /usr/local/lib/site_perl .) at /opt/vcftools/bin/vcf-fix-ploidy line 9.

Ok, i have to add the vcftools/perl directory to PATH:

setenv PATH ${PATH}:/opt/vcftools/perl
setenv PATH ${PATH}:/opt/vcftools/bin
setenv PATH ${PATH}:/opt/vcftools/

neither or all of this does help.

Furthermore I have no Variable PERL5LIB or PERLLIB, too.

These are my environmental variables, that I have:

USER=user0815
LOGNAME=user0815
HOME=/home/user0815
PATH=/usr/local/bin:/usr/bin:/usr/X11R6/bin:/bin:/usr/sbin:/sbin:/usr/games:/psi/bin:.:/opt/vcftools/perl

MAPLE_JAVA=/usr/lib/jvm/java-1.6.0-openjdk/jre/
ENVIRONMENT=NOBATCH

LINES=62

What can I do? How can I tell PERL manually to include this path?

Thanks, all the best.

it's a perl question, unrelated to bioinformatics.

you can run vctools using: perl -I /path/to/vcftools/perl /path/to/vcftools/perl/vcf-xxxxx

I am sorry, if this is not hte right place to ask. Btw, with the -I flag, the same error appears.

The import path of any righteous tool is beset on all sides by the inequities of the selfish and the tyranny of environment variables.

You can add the PERL5LIB variable, or you can add the lib path to your script. The environment variables are good because you can move the code around without editing it, but adding the path to the script is an easier fix.

In this case, add use lib qw(/opt/vcftools/lib/perl5/site_perl); to the top of vcf-fix-ploidy before use Vcf;.
