I'm trying to modify a tool so that a user can type in data and pipe it from stdin (e.g. <echo "ACGTATGATGT") instead of providing it to galaxy as a fasta file. The command is included below. When I try to execute this command in galaxy I get a syntax error. However, when I view the "job command-line" and execute that outside of galaxy it functions correctly. Can anyone tell me what the problem is?


-query &lt;(echo -e "$input_seq.query2")

It looks like you just need to turn a Galaxy parameter into a file for command-line usage. I would suggest using configfiles for this:


    <configfile name="fasta_file">${input_seq.query2}</configfile>

Then reference the filename as ${fasta_file}

That worked perfectly, thank you!
