Daa-meganizer requires .daa extension

Version: Community edition v 6.10.8
Tool: daa-meganizer

I used Diamond to create a .daa file, then renamed it prior to meganizing with daa-meganizer. The new name didn’t have the “.daa” extension. I got an IOException with the message “File not in DAA format”.

Easy workaround: I appended “.daa” to the filename and it worked fine. But the error message is still misleading.

Hi Philip, MEGAN requires the correct file suffix for performance issues. I have changed all “File not in XXX format” messages to “File not in XXX format (or incorrect file suffix?)” in the next release.
I hope that this will help future users.
