this is an announcement of the first test release of

Bio::Emboss perl module version 0.1

This module interfaces to the libraries of the EMBOSS package.

With this module you can access EMBOSS databases and use EMBOSS
functions to manipulate data. You can write perl programs that
look like any other EMBOSS program (command-line, web interface).

      use Bio::Emboss qw(:all);

      embInitPerl("seqret", \@ARGV);

      $seqall = ajAcdGetSeqall("sequence");
      $seqout = ajAcdGetSeqoutall("outseq");

      $firstonly = ajAcdGetBool ("firstonly");

      while ($seqall->ajSeqallNext($seq)) {
          $seqout->ajSeqAllWrite ($seq);

          last if $firstonly;


    and CPAN (soon)

    EMBOSS-2.5.1 (including sources)
    (I don't know if it will work with earlier versions.)

    There are interfaces to most (but not all) functions in
    libajax. There are only a few interfaces to functions in
    Most functions have *not* been tested yet (Emboss is big !),
    however a few test scripts are provided.
