Or you can install the package in your own home directory, see INSTALLING BIOPERL USING local::lib.
INSTALLING BIOPERL USING local::lib If you lack permission to install Perl modules into the standard system directories you can install them in your home directory using INSTALLING BIOPERL SCRIPTS Bio Perl comes with a set of production-quality scripts that are kept in the scripts/ directory.
You can install these scripts if you’d like, simply answer the questions during command.The tests have been organized into groups based upon the specific task or class the module being tested belongs to.[Thanks to ribasushi for the reminder.]) Second, having a complete list of what we have installed also gives us easy reproducibility.Future installs will always yield exactly the same set of files, without risk of silent changes due to new releases on CPAN.BIOPERL INSTALLATION The following are instructions for installing Bio Perl on Unix, Linux, and Mac OS X.
Windows installation instructions can be found in INSTALL. LINUX PACKAGE MANAGERS Many Linux distributions have already packaged bioperl.This means extension modules, like DBI, which were installed for one major version of perl can’t be reused with another.We keep all the code installed from CPAN in a repository, separate from the perl installation.That way we get to rerun all their test suites against each version of perl plus the specific versions of their prerequisite modules that we’re using. Identifying what CPAN distributions we have installed is fairly easy. (David Cantrel’s cpxxxan project offers an interesting approach to this problem.E.g., use as the CPAN mirror to get a “latest that works on 5.8.8” view.INSTALLING BIOPERL FROM GITHUB The very latest version of Bioperl is at
