id

  Usage    - print $relationship->id() or $relationship->id($id)
  Returns  - the relationship ID (string)
  Args     - the relationship ID (string)
  Function - gets/sets an ID

type

  Usage    - $relationship->type('is_a') or print $relationship->type()
  Returns  - the type of the relationship (string)
  Args     - the type of the relationship (string)
  Function - gets/sets the type of the relationship
  Remark   - this field corresponds to the relationship type ID (c.f. OBO::Core::RelationshipType::id())

equals

  Usage    - print $relationship->equals($another_relationship)
  Returns  - either 1 (true) or 0 (false)
  Args     - the relationship (OBO::Core::Relationship) to compare with
  Function - tells whether this relationship is equal to the parameter

head

  Usage    - $relationship->head($object) or $relationship->head()
  Returns  - the OBO::Core::Term (object or target) or OBO::Core::RelationshipType (object or target) targeted by this relationship
  Args     - the target term (OBO::Core::Term) or the target relationship type (OBO::Core::RelationshipType)
  Function - gets/sets the term/relationship type attached to the head of the relationship

tail

  Usage    - $relationship->tail($subject) or $relationship->tail()
  Returns  - the OBO::Core::Term (subject or source) or OBO::Core::RelationshipType (subject or source) sourced by this relationship or the OBO::Core::Instance (subject or source)
  Args     - the source term (OBO::Core::Term) or the source relationship type (OBO::Core::RelationshipType) or the source instance (OBO::Core::Instance)
  Function - gets/sets the term/relationship type/instance attached to the tail of the relationship

link

  Usage    - $relationship->link($tail, $head) or $relationship->link()
  Returns  - the two Terms (OBO::Core::Term) or two RelationshipTypes (OBO::Core::RelationshipType) or an Instance (OBO::Core::Instance) and a Term (OBO::Core::Term) --subject and source-- connected by this relationship
  Args     - the source (tail, OBO::Core::Term/OBO::Core::RelationshipType) and target(head, OBO::Core::Term/OBO::Core::RelationshipType) term/relationship type
  Function - gets/sets the terms/relationship type attached to this relationship

NAME ^

OBO::Core::Relationship - A relationship between two terms or two relationships or an instance and a term within an ontology.

A relationship is simply a triplet: tail->type->head or subject->predicate->object

     SUBJECT                 -->         PREDICATE           -->      OBJECT

 OBO::Core::Term             --> OBO::Core::RelationshipType --> OBO::Core::Term
 OBO::Core::RelationshipType --> OBO::Core::RelationshipType --> OBO::Core::RelationshipType
 OBO::Core::Instance         --> OBO::Core::RelationshipType --> OBO::Core::Term
 OBO::Core::Term             --> OBO::Core::RelationshipType --> OBO::Core::Instance
 OBO::Core::Term             --> OBO::Core::RelationshipType --> OBO::Core::Datatype (NOT IMPLEMENTED YET)
 OBO::Core::Instance         --> OBO::Core::RelationshipType --> OBO::Core::Datatype (NOT IMPLEMENTED YET)

DESCRIPTION ^

A relationship between:

- two Terms (OBO::Core::Term) or - two RelationshipTypes (OBO::Core::RelationshipType) or - an Instance (OBO::Core::Instance) and a Term (OBO::Core::Term)

OBO::Core::Term or OBO::Core::RelationshipType or OBO::Core::Term (1) ^^ ^^ ^^ || || || OBO::Core::Term or OBO::Core::RelationshipType or OBO::Core::Instance (1)

Relationships must have a unique ID (e.g. "APO:P0000028_is_a_APO:P0000005"), a type (e.g. 'is_a') and it must known the linking terms (tail and head).
