Bio::Search::StatisticsI - A Base object for statistics
# do not use this object directly, it provides the following methods
# for its subclasses
my $void = $obj->set_statistic("statistic_name","statistic_value");
my $value = $obj->get_statistic("statistic_name");
This is a basic container to hold the statistics returned from a program.
