So I'm working with a .SAM file that looks a little like this:

~$ zcat myfile.sam.gz | head -n5

and want to print reads that mapped in opposite orientation to the reference strand using this:

~$ samtools view -f 0x10 myfile.sam.gz

but I keep getting an error that looks like this:

[bam_header_read] EOF marker is absent. The input is probably truncated.
[bam_header_read] invalid BAM binary header (this is not a BAM file).
[main_samview] fail to read the header from "solid0388_20100319_1_887_Paired_8.mates.sortedFragments.sam.gz".

Any suggestions? For what it's worth, I'm using the latest version of samtools in Fedora.

your input is SAM , not BAM

I'm getting this:

[samopen] no @SQ lines in the header.
[sam_read1] missing header? Abort!
