Internal methods are usually preceded with a _ =cut # Let the code begin... package Bio::Factory::LocationFactoryI; use vars qw(@ISA); use strict; use Carp; use Bio::Root::RootI; @ISA = qw( Bio::Root::RootI ); =head2 from_string Title : from_string Usage : $loc = $locfactory->from_string("100..200"); Function: Parses the given string and returns a Bio::LocationI implementing object representing the location encoded by the string. Different implementations may support different encodings. An example of a commonly used encoding is the Genbank feature table encoding of locations. Example : Returns : A Bio::LocationI implementing object. Args : A string. =cut sub from_string{ my ($self,@args) = @_; $self->throw_not_implemented(); }
