Subject: [Bioperl-l] Bio::Index::Fastq - Interface for indexing (multiple) fastq files failure


Using the example code for this module I get an error building an index

		>index_fastq Run101_s11_test_index
		sdbm store returned -1, errno 22, key
"SOLEXA-02_0001:1:55:1110:290#0/1" at
/bli/lib/SunOS/perl5/site_perl/5.6.1/Bio/Index/Abstract.pm line 714, <FASTQ> line 30369077.

The code to build index file/retrieve sequences works on small test file but not the real data (fasyq file from single Illumina GAII lane). Here is the code for building the index.

		# Complete code for making an index for several
		# fastq files
		use Bio::Index::Fastq;
		use strict;

		unless (scalar @ARGV >= 2){die "ERROR index_fastq:
Usage: index_fastq <index file name> <(list of) fastq file(s) to index> \n\n"}

		my $Index_File_Name = shift;
		my $inx = Bio::Index::Fastq->new('-filename' => $Index_File_Name,'-write_flag' => 1);

Any idea what the problem might be and how to fix it? Let me know if you have any insight. Thanks,
