Uninstall bioSyntax

Uninstall bioSyntax

bioSyntax also comes with an uninstaller script in the release. To use it, run

	#  :'(
	bash bioSyntax_UNINSTALL.sh <editor-of-choice>

Note: Some of the script may require sudo/admin privileges at the moment. If you don’t have permissions or don’t like this; simply follow the Manual Uninstallation instructions below, but some files will need to be placed in paths accessed via root as well. For Windows, the script runs best with the Git Bash terminal, which may be required to be run as an administrator.
