[Bioperl-l] coloring of HSPs in blast panel

Hi,

I now found that bgcolor is using a  $feature->score that is coming
directly from the blast report, it is not the bit score.
     -bgcolor     => sub {my $feature = shift;
                                  my $score = $feature->score;
				  print "$score\n"; }
always print the score, even if the score is not set in the
Bio::SeqFeature::Generic object.

-description callbacks are somehow using the score from the SeqFeature object.

Does anyone have an idea why?

Further is is possible to get the raw_score of a hit. $hit->raw_score
actually gets the bitscore (w/o decimal point).
