During the conversion to NSData, I ran into a couple of questions.
1. Should the symbolChar in BCSymbol also be an NSData ivar? If not,
I guess we need to use malloc/free etc.
2. Why are we using utf8 and not ascii encoding? utf8 seems to be for
unicode while we only need single characters.
3. I am still not sire if we should stick with the symbolString in
BCSymbol. Any opinions on that one?
4. Slightly unrelated, but I'll ask it here anyway because I notced
it while implementing the NSData. In the initBases method in
BCNucleotideDNA/RNA I see many lines such as:
[baseDefinitions removeObjectForKey: @"A"];
I am not sure if I understand what the idea behind the removal of the
key-value pair is.
I will probably find more issues and post them here :)
BTW, has anyone had a chance to look at the code I posted at http://
home.earthlink.net/~kvddrift/biococoa/ ? Some feedback would be
nice, so I can continue making changes to my local project and then
commit them to cvs eventually. Do you guys think I am on the right
track, let me know what you think.
