APPENDIX

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

new

  Title   : new
  Usage   : $range1 = Bio::LiveSeq::Range->new(-seq => $obj_ref,
                                               -start => $beginlabel,
                                               -end => $endlabel, -strand => 1);

  Function: generates a new Bio::LiveSeq::Range
  Returns : reference to a new object of class Range
  Errorcode -1
  Args    : two labels, an obj_ref and an integer
            strand 1=forward strand, strand -1=reverse strand
            if strand not specified, it defaults to 1
            the -seq argument must point to the underlying DNA LiveSeq object

valid

  Title   : valid
  Usage   : $boolean = $obj->valid($label)
  Function: tests if a label exists AND is part of the object
  Returns : boolean
  Args    : label
