NAME

Bio::AlignIO::largemultifasta - Largemultifasta MSA Sequence input/output stream

SYNOPSIS

Do not use this module directly. Use it via the Bio::AlignIO class.

DESCRIPTION

This object can transform Bio::SimpleAlign objects to and from largemultifasta flat file databases. This is for the fasta sequence format NOT FastA analysis program. To process the pairwise alignments from a FastA (FastX, FastN, FastP, tFastA, etc) use the Bio::SearchIO module.

Reimplementation of Bio::AlignIO::fasta modules so that creates temporary files instead of keeping the whole sequences in memory.

APPENDIX

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

next_seq

 Title   : next_seq
 Usage   : $seq = $stream->next_seq()
 Function: returns the next sequence in the stream while taking care
           of the length
 Returns : Bio::Seq object
 Args    : NONE

next_aln

 Title   : next_aln
 Usage   : $aln = $stream->next_aln()
 Function: returns the next alignment in the stream.
 Returns : L<Bio::Align::AlignI> object - returns 0 on end of file
            or on error
 Args    : NONE

write_aln

 Title   : write_aln
 Usage   : $stream->write_aln(@aln)
 Function: writes the $aln object into the stream in largemultifasta format
 Returns : 1 for success and 0 for error
 Args    : L<Bio::Align::AlignI> object
