Some features require htslib 1.10+ and Python 3.5+. If you want to use Python interop, you also need to point SEQ_PYTHON to the Python library (typically called or similar). Also, if you have a custom build of htslib, you can point SEQ_HTSLIB to it (e.g. export SEQ_HTSLIB=/path/to/


Assuming that Seq was properly installed, you can use it as follows:

seqc run foo.seq  # Compile and run foo.seq
seqc run -release foo.seq  # Compile and run foo.seq with optimizations
seqc build -exe file.seq  # Compile foo.seq executable "foo"

Note that the -exe option requires clang to be installed, and the LIBRARY_PATH environment variable to point to the Seq runtime library (installed by default at ~/.seq/libs/).
