Hi, Benjamin, 

It seems that you are trying execute the example code in AnnBuilder vigentte 
without any modifications. There is a line right after the example: "the urls 
used in the example are for demonstration purpose only." There is no such file: 
But the unzipped version is available at the "data" folder. Maybe you could use 
that file and invoke parseData with "fromWeb=FALSE". 

You probably don't need to interface with "parseData" unless you want to build 
VERY customized annotation packages. There are several existing builder 
functions such as ABPkgBuilder, GOPkgBuilder, etc. They can be used to build 
annotation packages via a single function call. If you have to create 
customized builder functions, please (if you don't mind) illustrate more on 
your task next time. Many thanks.
