NAME ^

Bio::Phylo::Matrices::Characters - Container of character objects

SYNOPSIS ^

 # No direct usage

DESCRIPTION ^

Objects of this type hold a list of Bio::Phylo::Matrices::Character objects, i.e. columns in a matrix. By default, a matrix will be initialized to hold one object of this type (which can be retrieved using $matrix->get_characters). Its main function is to facilitate NeXML serialization of matrix objects, though this may expand in the future.

METHODS ^

SERIALIZERS

to_xml()

Serializes characters to nexml format.

 Type    : Format convertor
 Title   : to_xml
 Usage   : my $xml = $characters->to_xml;
 Function: Converts characters object into a nexml element structure.
 Returns : Nexml block (SCALAR).
 Args    : NONE

SEE ALSO ^

There is a mailing list at https://groups.google.com/forum/#!forum/bio-phylo for any user or developer questions and discussions.

Bio::Phylo::Matrices::TypeSafeData

This object inherits from Bio::Phylo::Matrices::TypeSafeData, so the methods defined therein are also applicable to characters objects objects.
