I just finished looking through my copy of your book last night.
You cover a nice combination of pattern matching tasks and include
background information for both Perl and R.  I like the fact that
the Perl examples use BioPerl where appropriate.  Too bad that
most other bioinformatics books don't do the same.

A quick personal comment - Thank you for referencing the "Using
BioPerl" book that Jason Stajich, Ewan Birney, and I are writing.
Now we'll have to finish it. :)
