Hi everyone,

I've been drawing a lot of helical wheels recently so put all my code 
into a module. I don't think there's anything in bioperl to do this yet 
though there are a few programs written in perl and flash on the web to 
do the same thing. I was thinking this could fit into biographics. Has 
lots of options to adjust labels, colours, ttf fonts and can output to 
png & svg.



Here's the output, converted to jpg from svg:


Works like this:

use DrawHelicalWheel;

my $im = DrawHelicalWheel->new(-title=>$title,
open(OUTPUT, ">$svg");
binmode OUTPUT;
print OUTPUT $im->svg;
close OUTPUT;
