[Bioperl-l] length of hit->description

Can you give more context of the problem?? Are you talking about a Blast
result or a HMMer result??

Is important because the default Blast output format use multiple lines if
hit description is too long, but HMMer truncates the description to what can
be fit in a single line, so BioPerl can't recover more than what appears in
the output. If your are talking about HMMer, some months ago I already
applied a patch that recovers as most as possible from the description:

Also, what's your purpose with " hit->description(500)"?? Because passing an
argument would change the description to '500' instead of the original

Asunto: [Bioperl-l] length of hit->description


When I use hit->description I get a truncated result like this:

repB putative plasmid replication protein R

I tried hit->description(500) and I get the same result.

Is there something wrong?
