I've just committed an updated Makefile.PL to HEAD for bioperl-live.
Could some people test it on multiple platforms and confirm it is ok
(try out the different possible options as well)?
(NB. in the below, 'pre-reqs' are things the makefile considers optional
Note that some pre-reqs have been removed:
# DBD::mysql (nothing in Bioperl-live uses it; Bioperl modules may end
up requiring it but only after the user makes an explicit choice by
typing 'DBD::mysql' in their own code to supply as an option to Bioperl
# File::Temp (standard in 5.6.1)
This pre-req was wrong:
and has been replaced with:
Also, I note that very many Bioperl modules need IO::String, including
Bio::SeqIO, so I'm not sure to what extent we can pretend it is an
optional module. I didn't make any change though.
I don't know if these changes affect the Windows ppm Nathan, or anything
The INSTALL docs need updating with these new and improved pre-reqs
(note that some pre-reqs had wrong/not enough Bioperl modules listed as
needing them); does someone want to correct the wiki (based on the new
Makefile.PL) and then Chris can re-create the text version?
