A newbie trying to learn how to work with linux systems. 
I Have been having trouble getting WU Blast to work. I already have Blast 2.2

I downloaded WUBlast 2.0. Unzipped and Untarred into a folder.
I created links to the executables from a different folder. 

But when i try running wu_blastn from command line, it does nothing.
I tried writing a wrapper script to set the ENV variables...but the ENV vars
werent being set for some reason. Do you think thats the reason for it to not run?

my wrapper script looks like this:
(export BLASTDB=/biodb1/blast/ncbi/ntseq:/biodb1/blast/ncbi/pepseq;\

Am i doing anything wrong or am i missing any steps? Any suggestions would be

Thanks for the help.
