EMBOSS: Project Meeting (Aug 2nd 1999)
Alan has successfully built EMBOSS under AIX.
The extra translation tables have been removed.
Peter has implemented draft documentation for "antigenic" and "pepnet". Alternative documentation styles were discussed, and a "man page" style was suggested. Peter will investigate.
Peter has modified the line wrapping for "-help" so that long words (for example URLs) are not wrapped even if they reach the right margin.
Validation programs will also be needed for testing the nightly builds. For example, a simple application to test plplot and return an error on failure.
Other tasks include an EMBOSS brochure and EMBOSS Quick Guide.
Alan has added EMBOSS to the NCBI FTP server. EBI should add it too.
Peter will write an embnet.news article.
Next deadline for the CCP11 newsletter (TBR) is in 10 weeks.
Peter will add a "What's New" section to the Web pages to track changes to the Beta release.
Next meeting Monday 16th August, 11:00am, usual place.
