SYNOPSIS

  use Bio::Grid::Run::SGE::Index::Dummy;

  my $idx = Bio::Grid::Run::SGE::Index::Dummy->new( idx_file => undef )->create;
  my @letters = ( 'a' .. 'z' );
  for ( my $i = 0; $i < $idx->num_elem; $i++ ) {
    is( $idx->get_elem($i), $letters[$i] );
  }

$number_of_elements = $idx->num_elem()
