Unless you have used the Windows installer, you will need to ensure you have everything you need to run IndelExtractor, and this will depend what Operating System you wish to run it on. Here are some guidelines:
If you have used the Windows Installer version, you will not need anything else! However, if you are using the source code you will need to download and install ActiveState's distribution of Perl 5.8 (which includes Perl/Tk - used for the Graphical Interface), Bioperl (core) v1.4 or greater.

the command line (command prompt):

Bioperl (core) v1.4 or greater and
Bioperl (run) v1.4 or greater.
Provided these are installed, you can execute IndelExtractor.pl from the IndelExtractor directory using the
Any other modules required for the installation of the above mentioned modules may be found by searching CPAN.
