[Bioperl-l] Downloading the tutorial for offline reading

Hi everybody,

We at Biopython were discussing whether we should move to a wiki-only 
documentation for Biopython instead of the current LaTeX (with PDF & 
HTML output) documentation in addition to the wiki. Whereas the wiki can 
be updated more easily and by more people, the PDF/HTML documentation 
has the advantage that it can be downloaded for offline reading.

So I was wondering how BioPerl creates its documentation. From the 
website, it appears that all documentation is in wiki-form. Is there a 
way to download the whole BioPerl documentation for offline reading? If 
not, do users frequently express a need for this? Or is everybody more 
or less happy with the wiki-only approach?

Best wishes from the Biopython side,

--Michiel.
