[Bioperl-l] (no subject)

I would definitely prefer a fully Perl-based implementation. For starters, I have not
been successful in compiling the Toolkit that contains netblast for some platforms (e.g.
AIX 5.2 w/gcc 4.0).
I haven't been following the discussion: is there some compelling reason to prefer a
netblast-based system that's come up recently? I'm guessing that adding a new non-perl
dependency would only be done if there was considerable justification for this type of
change, but I'm not clear from your message what that justification is.

To everyone who uses RemoteBlast.pm:
Would anyone object to RemoteBlast being rewritten in a way that requires
NCBI's blastcl3 executable?
Binary downloads of blastcl3 (column "netblast") are available for numerous
platforms at: http://ncbi.nih.gov/BLAST/download.shtml
Does anyone require or desire a "pure perl" implementation? If so, please
explain the advantage you see with such an implementation.
