RepeatFinder 1.0.0

Finally I get around to releasing the DNA matching program I wrote for the Molecular Ecology Lab at Canterbury University.

RepeatFinder is an exclusive and optimal repeating DNA motif matcher. I’m still not sure if that is the best way to describe it, but it’ll do for now.

Next step: publish an application note in a bioinformatics journal.

thanks, unfortunately it isn’t mine but the logo of the CMS I used (Drupal)

I love how the screenshot shows you running the prog with the wrong syntax… 🙂

Joel, you need to remove the object files from the distribution as it screws up the build on a non-x64 system. (And makes the archive a lot smaller too)

#5   Bob on 07.06.06 at 7:09 am

Oh, and all the files in the subdirectories have the executable bit set for some reason

#6   Joel on 07.06.06 at 2:50 pm

all those mistakes were planned! honest…

I thought I’d removed the object files, but obviously not – I think I need to investigate SF’s compile farm, all this mucking around with different architectures/OSes is confusing 😛

executable bit is probably set due to at some point copying from a fat32 share with an incorrent umask… will fix them tonight.

thanks for letting me know 🙂
