       Wrapper module for the Glimmer family of programs.  Should work with all currently
       available flavors: Glimmer, GlimmerM and GlimmerHMM.  However, only Glimmer 2.X and 3.X
       have been tested.

       Glimmer is open source and available at <>.

       GlimmerM is open source and available at <>.

       GlimmerHMM is open source and available at <>.

       Note that Glimmer 2.X will only process the first sequence in a fasta file (if you run()
       more than one sequence at a time, only the first will be processed).

       Note that Glimmer 3.X produces two output files.  This module only passes the .predict
       file to Bio::Tools::Glimmer.


   Mailing Lists
       User feedback is an integral part of the evolution of this and other Bioperl modules. Send
       your comments and suggestions preferably to one of the Bioperl mailing lists.  Your
       participation is much appreciated.
                  - General discussion  - About the mailing lists

       Please direct usage questions or support issues to the mailing list:

       rather than to the module maintainer directly. Many experienced and reponsive experts will
       be able look at the problem and quickly address it. Please include a thorough description
       of the problem with code and data examples if at all possible.
