NAME

Bio::SeqIO::swiss - Swissprot sequence input/output stream

SYNOPSIS

It is probably best not to use this object directly, but rather go through the SeqIO handler system. Go:

    $stream = Bio::SeqIO->new(-file => $filename, -format => 'swiss');

    while ( my $seq = $stream->next_seq() ) {
        # do something with $seq
    }

DESCRIPTION

This object can transform Bio::Seq objects to and from swissprot flat file databases.

There is alot of flexibility here about how to dump things which I need to document fully.

Optional functions

_show_dna()

(output only) shows the dna or not

_post_sort()

(output only) provides a sorting func which is applied to the FTHelpers before printing

_id_generation_func()

This is function which is called as

   print "ID   ", $func($seq), "\n";

To generate the ID line. If it is not there, it generates a sensible ID line using a number of tools.
