[Bioperl-l] Bio::Graphics Resolution

Print to SVG instead of PNG (should be resolution-independent); I use  
Illustrator to fine-tune it but there are several other programs  
which can do the same.  You'll need to install GD::SVG for it to work.

The alignment example I posted previously about (http:// 
www.bioperl.org/wiki/HOWTO_Discussion:Graphics) shows essentially  
what you need to do:

my $panel = Bio::Graphics::Panel->new(
     -image_class => 'SVG',
     # and whatever else

# later...

print $panel->svg;
