The London Perl and Raku Workshop takes place on 26th Oct 2024. If your company depends on Perl, please consider sponsoring and/or attending.


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.
