Hello,

Would anyone be able to help with the following.

version of bioperl: Distribution    B/BI/BIRNEY/bioperl-1.4.tar.gz
platform: OS X 10.4.5
What trying to do: Install core bioperl modules, then run bptutorial.pl.
Code that gives the error: Following installation steps:

sudo perl -MCPAN -e shell;
cpan> install Bundle::CPAN
cpan> q
sudo perl -MCPAN -e shell;
cpan> install B/BI/BIRNEY/bioperl-1.4.tar.gz
cpan> q
sudo perl -MCPAN -e shell;
cpan> force install B/BI/BIRNEY/bioperl-1.4.tar.gz
cpan> q

Tried to run bptutorial.pl from its directory,

/opt/local/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.7 directory
Note: first changed two lines in bptutorial.pl
#!/usr/bin/perl
to
#!/opt/local/bin/perl

philip-terrys-power-mac-g5:/opt/local/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.7 mterry$
perl -w bptutorial.pl 1
Example 1 uses files in t/data
Directory t/data not found
philip-terrys-power-mac-g5:/opt/local/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.7 mterry$

Note: permissions are 444 for bptutorial.pl
Reset to 555, got same output, still won't run.



Question:
What to do to get bptutorial.pl to run on this system?

Thanks,
