Bio::Factory::ObjectFactoryI - A General object creator factory


# see the implementations of this interface for details but # basically

    my $obj = $factory->create(%args);


This interface is the basic structure for a factory which creates new objects. In this case it is up to the implementer to check arguments and initialize whatever new object the implementing class is designed for.

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


 Title   : create
 Usage   : $factory->create(%args)
 Function: Create a new object  
 Returns : a new object
 Args    : hash of initialization parameters


 Title   : create_object
 Usage   : $obj = $factory->create_object(%args)
 Function: Create a new object.

           This is supposed to supersede create(). Right now it only delegates
           to create().
 Returns : a new object
 Args    : hash of initialization parameters
