Re: Converting blast+ output to gff (with gaps)

Thanks for the replies, but...

I can't tell what input formats for the blast results file are supported.  Format 11 and format 6 give no
output and no feedback. Putting some diagnostic print statements in the code suggests that I'm not
getting any result objects from Bio::SearchIO.

The script uses Bio::SearchIO, but does not seem to call the submodules for blast.  Documentation links on
the wiki seem to be broken, at least on this page:

	http://www.bioperl.org/wiki/Module:Bio::SearchIO
