Bio::SeqIO::ace - ace sequence input/output stream
Do not use this module directly. Use it via the Bio::SeqIO class.
This object can transform Bio::Seq objects to and from ace file format. It only parses a DNA or Peptide objects contained in the ace file, producing PrimarySeq objects from them. All other objects in the files will be ignored. It doesn't attempt to parse any annotation attatched to the containing Sequence or Protein objects, which would probably be impossible, since everyone's ACeDB schema can be different.
It won't parse ace files containing Timestamps correctly either. This can easily be added if considered necessary.
User feedback is an integral part of the evolution of this and other Bioperl modules. Send your comments and suggestions preferably to one of the Bioperl mailing lists. Your participation is much appreciated.

Please direct usage questions or support issues to the mailing list:
rather than to the module maintainer directly. Many experienced and reponsive experts will be able look at the problem and quickly address it. Please include a thorough description of the problem with code and data examples if at all possible.

The rest of the documentation details each of the object methods. Internal methods are usually preceded with a _
Title : next_seq Usage : $seq = $stream->next_seq() Function: returns the next sequence in the stream Returns : Bio::Seq object Args : NONE
Title : write_seq Usage : $stream->write_seq(@seq) Function: writes the $seq object into the stream Returns : 1 for success and 0 for error Args : Bio::Seq object(s)
