           Summary: Bio.PDB.MMCIFParser component MMCIFlex commented out in
           Product: Biopython
           Version: 1.48
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: Main Distribution
        AssignedTo: biopython-dev at biopython.org
        ReportedBy: cjoldfield at gmail.com

MMCIFParser is a documented feature of Bio.PDB, but it is broken by default
because the MMCIFlex build is commented out in the distribution setup.py. 
According to  


this is because it doesn't compile on Windows.  Though the function is
documented, the changes need to enable are not, so this seems like an
installation bug to me.

The fix on linux is to uncomment setup.py lines 486 on.  A general work around
might be to condition the compile on the os.sys.platform variable. I'd offer a
diff, but I'm new to biopython and python in general, so please forgive my

Source install of version 1.48, gentoo linux 2008, x86_64.
