Bio::Tools::FootPrinter - write sequence features in FootPrinter format


    use Bio::Tools::FootPrinter;

    my $tool = Bio::Tools::FootPrinter->new(-file=>"footprinter.out");

    while (my $result = $tool->next_feature){
      foreach my $feat($result->sub_SeqFeature){
        print $result->seq_id."\t".$feat->start."\t".$feat->end."\t".$feat->seq->seq."\n";


This module writes sequence features in FootPrinter format. See for more details.
