[Bioperl-l] repeatmasker

Hi Karen,

RepeatMasker isn't a BioPerl program - although the
Bio::Tools::Run::RepeatMasker module can call it if it's properly
installed on your system. RepeatMasker also requires either Cross_Match
or WUBlast to be installed, in addition to a local database containing
repeat data.

Can you run RepeatMasker from the command line okay?

However, when I run the following program (=first lines of the

I get the error message: *RepeatMasker program not found as  or not
