Bio::SeqIO::pir - PIR 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 pir flat file databases.
Note: This does not completely preserve the PIR format - quality information about sequence is currently discarded since bioperl does not have a mechanism for handling these encodings in sequence data.
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 : Array of Bio::PrimarySeqI objects
