giant log file when file missing summary.tax


#1

I made a typo in my bash file so ran it with no input files. instead of running through the commands and quitting. it’s printing an error over and over (oops 4TB logfile)

mothur > summary.tax(taxonomy=current, count=current)
[WARNING]: no file was saved for count parameter.
[WARNING]: no file was saved for taxonomy parameter.
You have no current taxonomy file and the taxonomy parameter is required.
