Default MetaVelvet not running

Hi guys,

I have an issue with the metavelvet software (v1.2.02). I've followed the installation and usage manual accordingly, but when running the metavelvet itself, it simply returned with the usage manual all over again.

Command line used:-

meta-velvetg out-dir [-ins_length 260] | tee logfile

The command line was executed in the directory containing the necessary output from velveth and velvetg:-

Is there something I'm missing?

Usually when you get the usage page, it indicates there is something wrong with your syntax. I can see 2 problems:

1. the square brackets indicate an optional parameter, so you should remove the square brackets, and run either

meta-velvetg out-dir -ins_length 260 | tee logfile

meta-velvetg out-dir  | tee logfile
2. the next problem is that if you are running the command from inside the directory with your output files, meta-velvet will not find the directory out-dir, so either specify the complete path to out-dir, or run meta-velvet from one directory up from what you are doing now.
