Re: Bug#289043: ITP: perlprimer -- [Biology] Graphical design of primers for PCR

Wouldn't the package be better named "pcrprimer" or something like this?
The fact that it is written in perl seems not to be relevant to
the user. The name "perlprimer" makes me rather think of a primer
(tutorial) for perl.

Hmm, that was my first thought, too. OTOH, the upstream package is
named perlprimer...
We have several packages which are differently (and better / more logical)
named than the upstream packages.  I really like the name pcrprimer because
it exactly describes what the package is.

Kind regards
