Is Chris D. around? I wrote to him at his sonsorol.org address a while back
about getting a CVS account but I haven't heard from him.

Thank you,

Brian O.

Have you set the environment variable BLASTDIR to point to the directory
where blastall executable is located?  This should be in the documentation
but we probably need to do a better job making it more prominent.

--Volunteers to help improve POD and install documentation are welcomed!--

You can also add the following to your code which should work:

  $ENV{'BLASTDIR'} = 'C:\path\to\blast';
