Default UCSC bedGraphToBigWig executable?

hello,

I was trying to make use of some the stand-alone packages in UCSC download:
such as http://hgdownload.cse.ucsc.edu/admin/exe/macOSX.i386/

But I do not know how to make the downloaded file become executable. I tried MAKE and it did not work. Can someone please help?


Thanks

Wing

If you downloaded the pre-compiled executable then you can change the permission on the file by doing this.

Open "terminal".

Code:
$ cd /directory_where_the_bedGraph_file_is
$ chmod u+x ./bedGraphToBigWig
