Fixelcfestats: error in number of input files

#1

I am trying to run fixelcfestats and I keep getting an error message:
[Error] number of input files does not match number of rows in design matrix.

Here are the contents of the input files:

Here are the contents of the design:

Contrast is 0 1

I have run the -debug mode and the error was as follows:

fixelcfestats: [DEBUG] found 44x2 matrix in file "exact_hitrate_designmat.txt"

fixelcfestats: [DEBUG] deleting scratch buffer for image "scratch fixel mask"...

fixelcfestats: [DEBUG] image "scratch fixel mask" unloaded

fixelcfestats: [DEBUG] unmapping file "fd/index.mif"

fixelcfestats: [DEBUG] image "fd/index.mif" unloaded

fixelcfestats: **[ERROR] number of input files does not match number of rows in design matrix**

Could you let me know what I am doing wrong?

Best,
Alex

That’s an odd one – but I have a vague recollection that sometimes the omission of a newline at the end of the file listing caused problems. Can you try adding (or maybe removing) a blank line at the end of the file listing?

Hi,

I tried both adding and removing blank lines at the end of the text files, but that didn’t work. I managed to get it to work by making a new text file and copying the file names there. There may have been some kind of text encoding differences in my original files.txt that I couldn’t detect.

Thanks!

Good to hear. Yes, this kind of issue has been reported before. Glad you got it worked out.
