Bio::BioVeL::Service::NeXMLMerger::Reader - base class for file readers


All other *Reader classes inside the Bio::BioVeL::Service::NeXMLMerger namespace inherit from this class. These child classes are used by the merger to create Bio::Phylo data objects, metadata, and character sets, which the merger folds into a single project object which is serialized to NeXML.



The constructor, which is executed when any of the child classes is instantiated, requires a single argument whose lower case value (e.g. nexus, text) is used to construct, load, and instantiate the concrete child reader class.
