  • Funny thing on the Windows complaints. We haven't had any users popping up on the list about this problem, but that could be b/c it's a DB_File issue? Oh well. We've also had users complaining about lack of a PPM for AS Perl...

    Just so you know, we're (by that, the bp devs) are planning on undertaking a major restructuring of BioPerl (been needed for years, really), into smaller, easier to maintain distributions similar to Moose. We'll probably tie it all together via a Task::BioPerl or similar for anyon

      You may not, but I've noticed a number of people showing up in #win32 trying to get it installed. We spent 2 hours a few weeks ago trying to get a cancer researcher up and running with some variant-discovery tool that didn't depend on much more than BioPerl.

        Looks like one problem was temp file generation (and deletion) when running tests. KMX's proposed solution [cpan.org], though, leaves generated temp files on the user's computer. My suggested compromise seems to work on OS X just fine, though I have no access to WinXP/Vista/7. Maybe time for use to take advantage of your Sekrit? [perl.org]
