-l/-Lflag allows the user to specify the length of the longest expected TR array in the input sequence, in millions. The default value is 2, for 2 million bp. For HG38, a value of 6 is necessary. Setting a sufficiently high value may result in a crash, very long execution time, or a sharp drop in available memory on your system. We have only tested up to a value of 25. For workloads requiring over 3GB of RAM (any value of
-labove 5), the 32-bit builds cannot be used.
trf409.linux64.exe hg38.fasta 2 5 7 80 10 50 2000 -l 6
-v/-Vflag allows you to quickly check your version of TRF.
-u/-Uflag allows you to quickly display the usage help text.
