The INSTALL.WIN document on the bioperl website
(http://bioperl.org/Core/Latest/INSTALL.WIN) that step 2 in installing
BioPerl on Windows is to install external modules. GD is one of those -
there are other as well (i.e. see
http://www.bioperl.org/Core/external.shtml). You can install GD with ppm:
ppm> search GD
If you don't see GD on the list returned by search add Randy Kobes
respository which has it:
ppm> rep add Kobes http://theoryx5.uwinnipeg.ca/ppms/
The search for GD again. Chose and install a version above 2.0 (I think).
This has other dependencies that you may or may not already have.
Installation on Windows can be a challenge, but there is an end to the
trouble, and it does work. Keep at it and you'll get there.
