[Bioperl-l] GMAP IO?

There hasn't been one yet that I know of. PSL can be parsed with
Bio::SearchIO parser.
The "non-standard" gff flavors is one of the annoyances but I just end
up writing very simple gff converters in simple scripts rather than a
master bioperl module that can handle all the different nuances that
are not part of a standard.  If you post the problematic alignment gff
can give you a better sense of what would be the code, but I suspect
it is just simple perl like this can standardize some things.  This is
my basic skeleton for that:
while(<>) {
 my @row = split(/\t/,$_);
 # assuming a gff3 file, map 9th column to hash, assume single
key=value pairs not key=value1,value2
 my %last = map { split(/=/,$_) } split(/;/,pop @row);
 # some more code to fix the 9th column fields...
 # now print out the line
 print join("\t", @row, map { sprintf("%s=%s",$_,$last{$_}) } grep {
exists $last{$_} } qw(ID Parent Note)),"\n";
