       Bio::Variation::IO::xml - XML sequence variation input/output stream


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


       This object can transform Bio::Variation::SeqDiff objects to and from XML file databases.

       The XML format, although consistent, is still evolving. The current DTD for it is at


       To use this code you need the module XML::Twig which creates an interface to XML::Parser
       to read XML and modules XML::Writer and IO::String to write XML out.
