I’m new to mothur, and trying to start analysing my data. I’'ve set the directory:
mothur > set.dir(input=/Users/User/Desktop/inputFiles)
and then tried to make.file:
mothur > make.file(inputdir=/Users/User/Desktop/inputFiles, type=fastq, prefix=stability)
But it gave me:
Setting input directory to: /Users/User/Desktop/inputFiles
FIND: Invalid switch
[ERROR]: /Users/User/Desktop/inputFiles\fileList.temp is blank. Please correct.
[WARNING]: Unable to find any fastq files in your directory.
I don´t know what happened. Can anyone help me? I have the fastq files in there.
Thanks a lot!
