       Wrapper module for Tom Macke and David Cases's RNAMotif suite of programs. This allows
       running of rnamotif, rmprune, rm2ct, and rmfmt. Binaries are available at

       This wrapper allows for one to save output to an optional named file or tempfile using the
       '-outfile_name' or '-tempfile' parameters; this is primarily for saving output from the
       rm2ct program, which currently does not have a parser available. If both a named output
       file and tempfile flag are set, the output file name is used. The default setting is
       piping output into a filehandle for parsing (or output to STDERR, for rm2ct which requires
       '-verbose' set to 1).

       WARNING: At this time, there is very little checking of parameter settings, so one could
       have an error if setting the worng parameter for a program. Future versions will likely
       add some error checking.


       All program parameters are currently supported. Of note, the 'D' parameter, used for
       setting the value of a variable to a value, is changed to 'set_var' to avoid name
       collisions with 'd' (used for dumping internal data structures).


   Mailing Lists
       User feedback is an integral part of the evolution of this and other Bioperl modules. Send
       your comments and suggestions preferably to one of the Bioperl mailing lists.  Your
       participation is much appreciated.
                  - General discussion  - About the mailing lists

       Please direct usage questions or support issues to the mailing list:

       rather than to the module maintainer directly. Many experienced and reponsive experts will
       be able look at the problem and quickly address it. Please include a thorough description
       of the problem with code and data examples if at all possible.

   Reporting Bugs

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

        Title   : new
        Usage   : my $wrapper = Bio::Tools::Run::RNAMotif->new(@params)
        Function: creates a new RNAMotif factory
        Returns:  Bio::Tools::Run::RNAMotif
        Args    : list of parameters
                  -tempfile        => set tempfile flag (default 0)
                  -outfile_name    => set file to send output to (default none)
                  -prune           => set rmprune postprocess flag (default 0)

        Title   : program_name
        Usage   : $factory>program_name()
        Function: holds the program name
        Returns:  string
        Args    : None

        Title   : program_dir
        Usage   : $factory->program_dir(@params)
        Function: returns the program directory, obtained from ENV variable.
        Returns:  string
        Args    :

        Title   : version
        Usage   : $v = $prog->version();
        Function: Determine the version number of the program
        Example :
        Returns : float or undef
        Args    : none

        Title   :  run
        Usage   :  $obj->run($seqFile)
        Function:  Runs RNAMotif programs, returns Bio::SearchIO/Bio::AlignIO
        Returns :  Depends on program:
                   'rnamotif' - returns Bio::SearchIO
                   'rmfmt -a' - returns Bio::AlignIO
                   all others - sends output to outfile, tempfile, STDERR

                   Use search() (for Bio::SearchIO stream) or get_AlignIO() (for
                   Bio::AlignIO stream) for a uniform Bioperl object interface.

        Args    :  A Bio::PrimarySeqI or file name
        Note    :  This runs any RNAMotif program set via program()

        Title   :  search
        Usage   :  $searchio = $obj->search($seqFile)
        Function:  Runs 'rnamotif' on seqs, returns Bio::SearchIO
        Returns :  A Bio::SearchIO
        Args    :  A Bio::PrimarySeqI or file name
        Note    :  Runs 'rnamotif' only, regardless of program setting; all other
                   parameters loaded

        Title   :  get_AlignIO
        Usage   :  $aln = $obj->get_AlignIO($seqFile)
        Function:  Runs 'rmfmt -a' on file, returns Bio::AlignIO
        Returns :  A Bio::AlignIO
        Args    :  File name
        Note    :  Runs 'rmfmt -a' only, regardless of program setting; only file
                   name and outfile (if any) are set

        Title   : tempfile
        Usage   : $obj->tempfile(1)
        Function: Set tempfile flag.  When set, writes output to a tempfile; this
                  is overridden by outfile_name() if set
        Returns : Boolean setting (or undef if not set)
        Args    : [OPTIONAL] Boolean

        Title   : prune
        Usage   : $obj->prune(1)
        Function: Set rmprune flag.  When set, follows any searches with a call to
                  rmprune (this deletes some redundant sequence hits)
        Returns : Boolean setting (or undef if not set)
