NAME ^

Bio::Factory::FTLocationFactory - A FeatureTable Location Parser

SYNOPSIS ^

    # parse a string into a location object
    $loc = Bio::Factory::FTLocationFactory->from_string("join(100..200, 
                                                         400..500");

DESCRIPTION ^

Implementation of string-encoded location parsing for the Genbank feature table encoding of locations.

The rest of the documentation details each of the object methods. Internal methods are usually preceded with a _

new

 Title   : new
 Usage   : my $obj = Bio::Factory::FTLocationFactory->new();
 Function: Builds a new Bio::Factory::FTLocationFactory object 
 Returns : an instance of Bio::Factory::FTLocationFactory
 Args    :

from_string

 Title   : from_string
 Usage   : $loc = $locfactory->from_string("100..200");
 Function: Parses the given string and returns a Bio::LocationI implementing

           encoding of locations.
 Example :
 Returns : A Bio::LocationI implementing object.
 Args    : A string.
