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: The uninstaller script should also be run from root and requires super-user commands 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.
