[Bioperl-l] New to BioPerl ... part II

Hi Olivier,
After the last release of BioPerl, I started to work to resolve all those
issues that only appear in Windows (the inplace edit in Bio::Root::IO, the
"cannot unlink file" errors, the use of 'cat' linux comand), and now all
tests pass in my Windows system (if there is any error in the latest code
let me know). Those fixes will be present in the next release of BioPerl,
BUT you can download the current developer version before the next official
release, if you go to the GitHub repository corresponding branch
(https://github.com/bioperl/bioperl-live/tree/v1.6.x) and press the Download
ZIP button. By the way, you can safely ignore some messages that are
warnings and not errors (the BioDBGFF.t  message and the "subroutine xxxx
redefined" messages).

For BioPerl-DB, the last release was 3 years ago and I have not checked it
in Windows yet, so it could have unresolved bugs. My recent experience have
shown me that the difference in the characters used as line-ending between
linux (1 char) and windows (2 chars), is a common source of bugs. =/
