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

        Title   : new
        Usage   : my $obj = Bio::Factory::FTLocationFactory->new();
        Function: Builds a new Bio::Factory::FTLocationFactory object
        Returns : an instance of Bio::Factory::FTLocationFactory
        Args    :

        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.

                  This implementation parses the Genbank feature table
                  encoding of locations.
        Example :
        Returns : A Bio::LocationI implementing object.
        Args    : A string.

        Title   : _parse_location
        Usage   : $loc = $locfactory->_parse_location( $loc_string)

        Function: Parses the given location string and returns a location object
                  with start() and end() and strand() set appropriately.
                  Note that this method is private.
        Returns : A Bio::LocationI implementing object or undef on failure
        Args    : location string
