I haven't written to the list a lot in the past, nor have I followed it
closely, but I do use Bioperl every day in my research and I think this is
an amazingly useful resource you guys have created. Thank you. I hope you
all have a wonderful 2005.
In re some of the things that Jason mentioned, it would be useful to have
a link on the website with a brief tutorial on how to write a bioperl
compliant module. What are the guidelines, what classes should be
inherited from, formats etc. For example, I've got a spidey parser lying
somewhere, and I could probably quickly hack it up to be useful for
others, but I'm reluctant to invest the time to read through the existing
code to figure out what rules I should be following. I'm not a perl
expert, but I'm not a novice either, and fairly technical guidelines would
work fine. If something like this exists already, a pointer to it would be
great and ignore everything else I said.
Thanks for your time.
