16:14 gtodd not sure how much overlap there is between Bio::Phylo and BioPerl ...  if anyone familiar with Bio::Phylo could comment on this error:  http://stackoverflow.com/a/27550265/2019415  ...
17:40 trs gtodd: it's because the PNG drawing class doesn't support drawing legends.
17:41 trs so the base class it inherits from warns when the stub method is called.
17:41 trs presumably it warns, not dies, because a legend isn't necessarily crucial.
17:43 gtodd ok so it's a real warning not a bug
17:43 trs correct.
17:44 trs to find this out, all I did was read the source, which was pointed to by the warning itself.
17:44 gtodd or error in my installation or the sample code :-)
17:44 trs no, it's a bug, or a missing feature.
17:44 trs not an error in anything.
17:44 gtodd yes I saw that warning
17:44 gtodd in the source but thought there must be a way to work around it
17:45 gtodd by not adding the label directly in the call or whatever
17:45 trs have you tried that?
17:46 gtodd or writing it "on top" in some other way
17:46 trs presumably if the renderer doesn't think it needs to draw a legend, it won't call the method to do so, and so you won't get the warning.
17:46 gtodd yeah
17:46 trs but at this point I'm not reading the code anymore.
17:46 trs so I can't tell you for sure.
17:47 gtodd :-D  ... to me SVG output is preferable
17:47 trs sure
17:48 gtodd though I imagine this could pose problems on not too old versions of windows etc.
17:48 gtodd anyway thanks
17:49 trs glad to help
