First: thanks again for all the help in picking a book.
Now: I bought Tisdall's Beg Perl for Bioinformatics. I am trying to
type and run a SIMPLE example in my Mac OS 10.2.x Unix terminal and I
am completely failing. Can a fellow Mac Perl-er help me out with the
logistics of where to write the code, where to save it, and how to
tell my computer to run it. I KNOW THIS IS BELOW you all, but I am
about to shatter my poor computer screen. I am getting the coding
ideas I just cant figure out the system. Thank you all for your
patience. Also, can a Mac person suggest a good free text editor to
use in writing the code.
FYI the code is:
$DNA = 'AACGGTATGACTGAACGCGGTAGC';
