Bio::Factory::SeqAnalysisParserFactoryI - interface describing objects capable
of creating SeqAnalysisParserI compliant parsers
Package variables
No package variables defined.
Included modules
    # initialize an object implementing this interface, e.g.
$factory = Bio::Factory::SeqAnalysisParserFactory->new();
# obtain a parser object
$parser = $factory->get_parser(-input=>$inputobj,
-method => $method);
# $parser is an object implementing Bio::SeqAnalysisParserI
# annotate sequence with features produced by parser
while(my $feat = $parser->next_feature()) {
This is an interface for factory classes capable of instantiating
SeqAnalysisParserI implementing parsers.
The concept behind the interface is a generic analysis result parsing
in high-throughput automated sequence annotation pipelines. See
Bio::SeqAnalysisParserI for more documentation of this concept.
Methods description
get_parsercode    nextTop
 Title   : get_parser
Usage : $factory->get_parser(-input=>$inputobj,
[ -params=>[@params] ],
-method => $method)
Function: Creates and returns a parser object for the given input and method.
The type of input which is suitable depends on the implementation,
but a good-style implementation should allow both file names and
streams (filehandles).
A particular implementation may not be able to create a parser for the requested method. In this case it shall return undef. Parameters (-params argument) are passed on to the parser object and therefore are specific to the parser to be created. An implementation of this interface should make this argument optional. Example : Returns : A Bio::SeqAnalysisParserI implementing object. Args : input - object/file where analysis results are coming from,
params - parameter to use when parsing/running analysis
method - method of analysis
Methods code
sub get_parser {
    my ( $self, @args) = @_;
