 use Bio::Factory::FTLocationFactory;
 my $locfact = Bio::Factory::FTLocationFactory->new();
 my $location = $locfact->from_string("1..200");

APPENDIX

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

from_string

 Title   : from_string
 Usage   : $loc = $locfactory->from_string("100..200");
 Function: Parses the given string and returns a Bio::LocationI implementing
           object representing the location encoded by the string.

           Different implementations may support different encodings. An
           example of a commonly used encoding is the Genbank feature table
           encoding of locations.
 Example :
 Returns : A Bio::LocationI implementing object.
 Args    : A string.
