EMBOSS: Project Meeting (Aug 7th 2000)
Val Curwen, Alan Bleasby, Jon Ison, Tim Carver, Gary Williams
Apologies: Gary Williams
1. Matters Arising
Alan will explore the possibility of distributing EMBOSS with SuSE and
An additional program is required for indexing i.e. dbifasta. Existing
fasta functionality will be taken out of dbiflat and more formats
Gary has populated the documentation directory with application
documentation in HTML format, and reported on the creation of 'manuals'
and 'tutorials' directories. The script 'autodoc.pl' identifies those
programs which have not been documented and produces documentation files
in text only from the HTML.
Gary has written the tfm program which will pipe documentation on EMBOSS
programs through 'more'.
Val suggested that the use of, e.g. tembl and tsw, by test programs
mentioned in the documentation was misleading and should be replaced by
the use of the full databases. A test script should be written to
ensure that sequences which the test scripts rely on still present in
the databases after new releases.
