[Bioperl-l] Handleing OS differences

Hello Lincoln and Jason,

I was wondering if there is a standard way of handling OS-dependent
differences in the BioPerl universe.  I have seen using 'use Config;' to
get the OS, and then putting OS-specific stuff with conditionals, and
wondered if it would be OK if I did that in this case.  I am asking
because I got some suggestions for changes to bulk_load_gff.pl so that
it would run on Windows.
