Scoring functions: talaris2013 incompatible versions

 I'm tryintg to sort the generated sequences from the .spec output with the following command and I use the flag to activate talaris:

~/tools/analysis/apps/ 1cka_spec.spec 3 0.1 binding-prot_score pepspec_background.binding-prot-0.1.pwm -corrections::restore_talaris_behavior

But I get error:
ERROR: talaris2013(.wts) requested, but -corrections::restore_talaris_behavior not set to true. This leads to a garbage scorefunction.  Exiting.

I read some solutions advices to the similar problems from the forum. If I get it right , for the score functions I should use either talaris or REF , as the flag doesn't help in this case, I need to change all the REF to talaris2013 score fucntion script equals. But I have no idea how which files I should replace nor how I should edit those files.

Could anyone help me with this?

Thanks in advance.

The issue you're running up against is that the ~/tools/analysis/apps/ script isn't a Rosetta C++ application itself, so it's not necessarily going to obey C++ application options when passed on the command line. (Indeed, I don't see anything scorefunction dependent in the script.)

I don't know what version of the script you're using, but the version that I'm seeing in the current versions of Rosetta is just a file manipulation script. It won't launch Rosetta applications by default, and it shouldn't be giving you that error message.

Which command are you actually running when you get that error message about talaris? It's not necessarily the script itself which needs the -corrections::restore_talaris_behavior flag -- it's probably the command you're passing the generated .spec file to.

This is the complete error message,                                                           

[FILE]: src/core/scoring/                                         

[LINE]: 157                       


[ ERROR ] UtilityExitException

ERROR: talaris2013(.wts) requested, but -corrections::restore_talaris_behavior not set to true. This leads to a garbage scorefunction. Exiting.                                                                     

The c++ file may be .         

As for the command - There is a default sorting command, that needs the term "binding -prot_score" to be passed , in my understanding.

For the command, what did you type into the command prompt which gave you that error message? Did it come directly after pressing enter on the command above, or did that program finish and you entered in another command? (If so, what was that second command?)

I just pressed enter after the command above, nothing more.

This is the protocol which I followed .

As addition to the above question: 

I don't know which command is used backend in this case. Could you advice on how to pass the correction::restore_talariis_behavior through the neccessary command. Or which C++ file I should edit, to restore talaris?

Thank you
