The normal expectation is the Galaxy wrapper calls the tool ONCE only, with a more complex command line including multiple file names from the repeat. If I recall correctly from your last email, you are using a trick with semi colons to embed multiple shell commands in the <command> tag, one for each repetition of the <repeat> tag. I suggest you rework your Perl script to be designed to be called once for all the work, Peter ___________________________________________________________ Please keep all replies on the list by using "reply all" in your mail client.
