get.current - not giving desired output

Hi Team,

I’m following tutorial at MiSeq_SOP. Mothur version: mothur v.1.35.1
Environment I’m on: Redhat
I run: mothur “#summary.seqs(fasta=stability.trim.contigs.fasta)” I get output, however, when I try to run:

mothur "#get.current()"

I don’t get current files saved by mothur, instead it gives me below output along with all paper, help(), quit(), and tool version details:

mothur > get.current()

Current working directory: /path_to_/mothur_data/MiSeq_SOP/

mothur > quit()

Am I doing it incorrectly?

Running get.current only really makes sense when you’re running mothur in the interactive mode after running other commands. When you run it like you are, there aren’t any file names being saved by mothur.


Hi Dr. Pat,
Thanks for your reply. :slight_smile:
