parse.list problem in mothur v. 1. 44. 3 windows

Hi, I’m new to mothur and still learning my way through it. When I ran parse.list(list=1.list, group=merge.groups), I kept getting an error message saying parse.list is not a valid command in mothur. Are there substitute commands that I can use? How can I face this problem? I am looking forward to hearing back from you. Any help would be highly appreciated.

This command’s functionality was moved into the split.groups command, split.groups. You can parse your list file into a list file for each sample as follows:

mothur > split.groups(list=1.list, group=merge.groups)

Your answer is very helpful for me. Thank you.
