Title : freshen Usage : $flag = Bio::DB::GFF->freshen_ace; Function: Refresh internal acedb handle Returns : flag if correctly freshened Args : none Status : Public
ACeDB has an annoying way of timing out, leaving dangling database handles. This method will invoke the ACeDB reopen() method, which causes dangling handles to be refreshed. It has no effect if you are not using ACeDB to create ACeDB objects.
