NAME ^

Bio::PhyloRole - Extra behaviours for the base class

SYNOPSIS ^

 # Actually, you would almost never use this module directly. This is 
 # the base class for other modules.
 use Bio::Phylo;
 
 # sets global verbosity to 'error'
 Bio::Phylo->VERBOSE( -level => Bio::Phylo::Util::Logger::ERROR );
 
 # sets verbosity for forest ojects to 'debug'
 Bio::Phylo->VERBOSE( 
        -level => Bio::Phylo::Util::Logger::DEBUG, 
        -class => 'Bio::Phylo::Forest' 
 );
 
 # prints version, including SVN revision number
 print Bio::Phylo->VERSION;
 
 # prints suggested citation
 print Bio::Phylo->CITATION;

DESCRIPTION ^

This is the base class for the Bio::Phylo package for phylogenetic analysis using object-oriented perl5. In this file, methods are defined that are performed by other objects in the Bio::Phylo release that inherit from this base class (which you normally wouldn't use directly).

For general information on how to use Bio::Phylo, consult the manual (Bio::Phylo::Manual).

If you come here because you are trying to debug a problem you run into in using Bio::Phylo, you may be interested in the "exceptions" system as discussed in Bio::Phylo::Util::Exceptions. In addition, you may find the logging system in Bio::Phylo::Util::Logger of use to localize problems.

METHODS ^

ACCESSORS

get_nexus_name()

Gets invocant's name, modified to be safely used in nexus files. This means that:

names with spaces in them that aren't 'single quoted' have their spaces replaced with underscores
names with any of the following characters in them are single quoted: -^*(){}[]+=;:"\<>/,
names with single quotes inside them (i.e. not around them) are "double quoted"
 Type    : Accessor
 Title   : get_nexus_name
 Usage   : my $name = $obj->get_nexus_name;
 Function: Returns the object's name.
 Returns : A string
 Args    : None
get_internal_name()

Gets invocant's 'fallback' name (possibly autogenerated).

 Type    : Accessor
 Title   : get_internal_name
 Usage   : my $name = $obj->get_internal_name;
 Function: Returns the object's name (if none was set, the name
           is a combination of the $obj's class and its UID).
 Returns : A string
 Args    : None

PACKAGE METHODS

get()

Attempts to execute argument string as method on invocant.

 Type    : Accessor
 Title   : get
 Usage   : my $treename = $tree->get('get_name');
 Function: Alternative syntax for safely accessing
           any of the object data; useful for
           interpolating runtime $vars.
 Returns : (context dependent)
 Args    : a SCALAR variable, e.g. $var = 'get_name';
to_string()

Serializes object to general purpose string

 Type    : Serializer
 Title   : to_string()
 Usage   : print $obj->to_string();
 Function: Serializes object to general purpose string
 Returns : String 
 Args    : None
 Comments: This is YAML
VERBOSE()

Getter and setter for the verbosity level. Refer to Bio::Phylo::Util::Logger for more info on available verbosity levels.

 Type    : Accessor
 Title   : VERBOSE()
 Usage   : Bio::Phylo->VERBOSE( -level => $level )
 Function: Sets/gets verbose level
 Returns : Verbose level
 Args    : -level => $level
 Comments:
CITATION()

Returns suggested citation.

 Type    : Accessor
