[Bioperl-l] Happy Christmasl; More testing please!
Tue, 24 Dec 2002 12:54:23 +0000 (GMT)
New tar file is up:
ftp.bioperl.org - pub/birney/bioperl-1.2-alpha-2.tar.gz
Peter has updated bptutorial.pl, Jason and I have fixed some more things,
Lincoln has been tweaking Bio::Graphics. RemoteBlast is now back in the
core, and Bio::Perl has some easy routes to using it, meaning the
following 3 line script will work:
This abuses NCBI Blast servers, so we probably need to put a delay loop in
remote blast to make sure abuse is limited.
Open question about whether StandAloneBlast should also migrate back - i
think yes, because then we give people a good way to get standalone blast
to work and stop abusing NCBI. (one day I should write a service that
works against EBI to abuse EBI... Hmmmm)
I run tests regularly on:
uname Perl Version
SunOS 5.5 patch level 3
All tests pass for me. SearchIO is still spewing warnings liberally which
someone will get to before it is released.
For other OS's and other Perl versions (notice I don't test against Perl
5.8) i don't test.
PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE ---- TEST
- download bioperl-1.2-alpha-2.tar.gz
- simply run perl Makefile.PL
- make test
- NO NEED to download all the supporting modules - just the "out of the
box" Bioperl tests will be fine. i don't care about "side" modules which
require half of CPAN installed before they work (eg, the XML set). I worry
about the "standard" Bioperl set.
- report back to the list the uname (type uname on the command line) and
the perl -v commands, and either
(a) all tests pass (don't worry about skipping tests or the warnings
(b) tests don't pass - in which case, tell us which one and run the test
by hand, going
and include the output.
YOU NOW WAIVE YOUR RIGHTS TO MOAN ABOUT YOUR SYSTEM NOT WORKING IF YOU
DONT TEST THE ALPHA AND RELEASE CANDIDATE TAR FILES
--- finally - Happy Christmas to all.
