Trying to use tbl2asn [http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/genbank/tbl2asn2/]

The directions are here [http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/books/NBK53709/#gbankquickstart.Submission_using_tbl2asn]

It starts on Step C where you download the tbl2asn file and rename it.  It says "set permissions as required for your operating system." but i have no idea how to do that.

I moved it into a new folder in my applications and then:

export PATH=/Applications/Command_line_apps:$PATH

in the terminal . tried to call it using tbl2asn in the command prompt but i got back

-bash: /Applications/Command_line_apps/tbl2asn: Permission denied


How do fix the permissions?

Hello jolespin - this post does not fit the main topic of this site, as is not a bioinformatics question. I'd suggest that you do some basic reading on file permissions in UNIX. 

FWIW, 'chmod +x yourfile' should make it executable, which may solve your problem.
