Spilts a directory containing multiple fasta files into n directories.
The base name indicated at the command line will be used to assign a
prefix name to the directories that are created.
Path of the directory containing the sequences to process.
Path of the directory to place the program output.
Number of dirs to split the parent dir into.
Name to use a base name for creating the subdirectories.
Path to a file that will be used to log program status.
If the file already exists, additional information will be concatenated
to the existing file.

- ERROR: No fasta files were found in the input directory

- ERROR: Could not create the output directory

This could be do to the fact that the directory that you are trying
