[Bioperl-l] Deprecating

I took a look at AlignIO/meme.pm and fixed some obvious problems but I think
it's possible that the file used in the tests, t/data/meme.dat, may not have
all the information I need to debug the module (and I don't have meme
myself). Question: is "strand" ever stipulated in the meme output file?
There's no "+" or "-" indicated in meme.dat. This file is the result of an
analysis of DNA, so I'm a bit surprised not to see some indication of strand
(and the code, before I modified it, was using a regexp that attempted to
capture strand information). Can you enlighten me here? Here's one of the
relevant sections:

Sequence name             Start   P-value                      Site
-------------             ----- ---------            -----------------------
6603                       1311  2.59e-15 GGCGCATTGA
83796                      1284  2.59e-15 GGAGGATTGA
20218                       938  6.34e-12 TTTTTGGTAA
10657                      1685  8.70e-12 GGCCCGCGCG

Perhaps when one runs meme with DNA one can tell it to just do 1 strand,
rather than both? This would explain the absence of strand information, but
it means the regexp changes depending on this mode. Again, I don't have meme
or use meme, so you're going to have to tell me, or send me output files
with and without strand stipulation.

I wonder if anyone uses *Bio::AlignIO::meme*. Last time (year ago) it
did not work for me and I have not seen anyone committing changes....
