Not sure whether this bug is specific to my local machine or a true bug of the 1.44.3 release. When running “remove.groups” on my local machine (macOS 10.14.6; mothur v 1.44.3), the last group on the list doesn’t get removed. E.g.:
remove.groups(shared=final.shared, groups=a-b-c-d) would only remove groups “a-b-c”, leaving “d” in the outputted “final.pick.shared”.
I’ve tried running the same command on the same files on our server (Ubuntu 14.04.6 LTS; mothur v 1.42.3) and the command runs fine, removing all desired groups.
All the best,
