Compile Time Path Feature 1.12.0

You can now set a default path at compile time - set database location

This might be a dumb oversight on my part, but I don’t see where/how to do this. I’d really appreciate a little direction.

Thank you!

No problem. So you have to do this from the source code and then compile. Specifically, open the file - “makefile” and change line 16 to be the path to the folder that contains your mothur-related files (e.g. alignments, taxonomy outlines, etc).

Oh perfect thanks!! I skipped right over those comments!

So, sort of related, do you have a recommended version of gcc?

We’re using 4.2.1 for mac

Oh good to know! Thank you!
