Note: this software is under active development!
This is currently an early work in progress to create a wrapper library for gff3-pltools.
gff3-pltools have to be installed and in the PATH. Ruby is a requirement too, and the rest can be installed using bundler.
Build and install instructions
Given the gff3-tools are installed, the gem command can be used to install the latest gem from rubygems.org:
gem install bio-gff3-pltools
To build and install the library from source, use the following steps:
tar -zxvf bioruby-gff3-pltools-X.Y.Z.tar.gz cd bioruby-gff3-pltools-X.Y.Z bundle install rake install
To build a gem without installing, use the rake task "build" instead of "install" in the previous example.
To run cucumber tests, first make sure the D utilities are available in the path and then start the "features" rake task, like this:
To use the library in your code, after installing the gem, simply require the library:
The API docs are online:
