Bioperl: "port" to NT
Fri, 11 Dec 1998 18:13:47 -0500
To the group,
This is getting so easy I'm embarassed. If
one goes to and gets the most recent Perl
port from http://www.activestate.com and
installs it on NT, then downloads bioperl-0.04.zip,
unzips, and copies the Bio/ directory to the
newly create C:\Perl\lib, the scripts using
Bioperl just work. That's it.
By that I mean either through Cygnus' bash
or through NT's "Command Prompt".
However, the full 'perl Makefile.pl' followed by
'make' gives :
Makefile:738: *** missing separator. Stop.
I'll start to dissect this after the weekend with
my 15 month old son. He could have done this "port"
