[Bioperl-l] parsing result of CAP3 (ACE file)

Laurent -

I have modified modules that will do it as I recently ran into problems with
the DB_FILE module in Assembly::IO.  In addition, the current version of
cap3 seems to put a contig length where a pad length is expected (based on
the Ace format description).  The modules I have will parse the ace file
contig-by-contig rather than having the entire assembly slurped into memory
(or a tied hash) all at once.  You are welcome to them if you are interested
and I'd like to get them in Bioperl at some point.  Bascially, there are
three files - a modified Contig.pm, ContigIO.pm, and a modified ace.pm (in a
ContigIO directory).
