Hi, I am a newbie for bioperl and met the below question.

I was trying to use Bio::Tools::Run::Primer3. When I run the example
code in the documentation of this module, I got the following error
<shell> $ perl -I ../primer3_1.0.0/src/ -w primer3run_test.pl 

Use of uninitialized value in concatenation (.) or string at
/usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.0/Bio/Tools/Run/Primer3.pm line 212,
<GEN0> line 1.
primer3 can not be found. Is it installed?

I already installed Primer3 according its instruction and it works
well to run the test and example. I also noticed that the
primer_test.pl in primer3 package calls "primer3_core" rather than
"primer3". Does it matter for Bio::Tools::Run::Primer3 module?

Thanks ahead for your help.
