APPENDIX

The rest of the documentation details each of the object methods. Internal methods are usually preceded with a _

remove_synonyms

 Title   : remove_synonyms
 Usage   :
 Function: Removes all synonyms for an ontology term.
 Example :
 Returns : TRUE on success, and FALSE otherwise.
 Args    : The calling persistence adaptor.

           The persistent term object for which to remove the synonyms
           (a Bio::DB::PersistentObjectI compliant object with defined
           primary key).

store_synonym

 Title   : store_synonym
 Usage   :
 Function: Stores a synonym for an ontology term.
 Example :
 Returns : TRUE on success, and FALSE otherwise.
 Args    : The calling persistence adaptor.

           The persistent term object for which to store the synonym
           (a Bio::DB::PersistentObjectI compliant object with defined
           primary key).

           The synonym to store (a scalar). 

get_synonyms

 Title   : get_synonyms
 Usage   :
 Function: Retrieves the synonyms for an ontology term and adds them
           the term's synonyms.
 Example :
 Returns : TRUE on success, and FALSE otherwise.
 Args    : The calling persistence adaptor.

           The persistent term object for which to retrieve the
           synonyms (a Bio::DB::PersistentObjectI compliant object
           with defined primary key).

bind_param

 Title   : bind_param
 Usage   :
 Function: Binds a parameter value to a prepared statement.

           We override this in order to possibly truncate term
           definitions longer than 4000 characters, the limit of
           Oracle's VARCHAR2 data type. Note that this problem does
           not exist with Pg's and mysql's text types.

 Example :
 Returns : the return value of the DBI::bind_param() call
 Args    : the DBI statement handle to bind to
           the index of the column (1-based)
           the value to bind
           additional arguments to be passed to the sth->bind_param call
