Start a console

OCCURRENCE

ARB_NT/Tools/Start XTERM

 

DESCRIPTION

Starts a console window from ARB.

The shell in the console uses the same environment as the running arb session. From this environment you may call perl-scripts

  • delivered with ARB (e.g. in $ARBHOME/PERL_SCRIPTS) or
  • your own scripts.

The main reason for the execution environment is the ability to easily access the database currently loaded into ARB.

 

NOTES

The console window is started in the same way as done to call external tools (like RAxML).

See ARB_XTERM in ´ARB environment variables´ to customize the way arb starts consoles.

 

EXAMPLES

of existing scripts:

  • listMarkedSpecies.pl (save names of currently marked species to a textfile)
  • markSpecies.pl (mark species according to content of a textfile)
  • arb_read_tree (import tree from newick treefile)

 

WARNINGS

None
