I am trying to set the input directory as follows:
mothur > set.dir(input=/users/hiraabid/desktop/mothur/M06339_Run_192-Semrau_Soil_Microcosm/)
After this I entered the command get.current() and still the current working directory is /users/hiraabid/desktop/mothur
I also entered the command system(ls) as follows
mothur > system(ls)
It is still in the mothur file and not going to this file “M06339_Run_192-Semrau_Soil_Microcosm”. I am providing the whole path in set.dir command but still It is unable to access this “M06339_Run_192-Semrau_Soil_Microcosm” file.
Below is a screen shot of mothur file that is opened from desktop. This file “M06339_Run_192-Semrau_Soil_Microcosm” is located in it and mothur is unable to access it. Please tell me if i am missing something.
