Hi everyone,

Now available at http://www.techfak.uni-bielefeld.de/bcd/Perl/Bio/welcome.html

Bio::UnivAln 1.004 Beta

Arbitrary numbering schemes are now supported, you can write things like 

  $aln_copy->seqs({ids=>'Rattus Mus Junk'},{ids=>'1 1a Whatever 3 5 50'})

where the row IDs may come from the fasta file, and the column ids have
been set manually (they could come from a file if the format supports this).
Also, you can instantly overwrite the alignment by a slice of itself,
doing an 'inplace' manipulation (works for the utilities, too).

Here's the revision history:
Bio::UnivAln Version 1.004 on 13 Mar 1997. Fixed bug with reading fasta files.
Changed file format identifiers ``Fasta'' and ``Raw'' to ``fasta'' and ``raw''.
Added support for arbitrary numeration schemes by providing access by
name/id for rows (sequences) and columns (sites). Made _arys() and
_strs() accept same row/column designations like seqs() . Added 'inplace'
manipulation for slicing and most utilities. Improved speed a little.
Deriving default description string from file name, if available. 

I could not yet get around to have the ``standard'' installation process;
will do this ASAP.
Right now, just save the UnivAln.pm file and off you go...


**** PLEASE, PROOF my POD and code !!!:-) ****

(And, let's have Bio::Seq finalized really really soon now ! :-)

best wishes,
