in reply to NL len not an issue, at least for Win32
in thread Base sequence length in fasta format file

Er. Well a couple of test prove you right.

But also prove me right: (phew ;-)

print length <DATA>,$\; print length <DATA>,$\; __DATA__ ABCDEF ABCDEF
7 6
So there still could be an issue here... :-)

Although granted it isnt the one I was harping on about...
