Error in sub.sample command in v.1.26


I’m trying to subsample my fasta, name and group files to 1260 sequences per sample, with the following command:

sub.sample(,,, size=1260, persample=true)

The command appears to run well, then gives me the following output:

Output File Names:

mv: cannot stat `’: No such file or directory

Output File Names:

However, the files ‘’ and ‘’ are not created, despite being listed as outputs. Also, the line that begins with ‘mv: cannot stat…’ only appears in the terminal window, not in the logfile created for this session. It’s all a bit strange.

The exact same command run with v.1.25 has no problems. It successfully creates ‘’ and ‘’.

I’ll use v.1.25 for this command for now, so there’s no rush. I really enjoy using mothur, by the way. Thanks for giving us such a useful set of tools!

P.S. I’m running Ubuntu 11.04 and using the linux 64-bit executable version of mothur.

Thanks for bringing this to our attention. It will be fixed in our next release.
