Hey Dave, I've added a topic here to talk about tags for escaping shell code:

http://bioperl.org/wiki/Talk:Getting_BioPerl


for (0..$#a) { print $a[$_]; }

Hi Dave,

yes, you're right, there is indeed a method in Bio::AnnotationI called as_text and that's why I left it on the comment. The reason I changed the code to the method display_text though is because the first sometimes prepends the string 'Value: ' to the output while the second only gives the results which makes comparisons easier.

I'm new to Bioperl though and can't see any drawbacks in using display_text. Please fix it if its incorrect.
