NAME

       Bio::AlignIO::selex - selex sequence input/output stream

SYNOPSIS

         # Do not use this module directly.  Use it via the L<Bio::AlignIO> class.

         use Bio::AlignIO;
         use strict;

         my $in = Bio::AlignIO->new(-format => 'selex',
                                    -file   => 't/data/testaln.selex');
         while( my $aln = $in->next_aln ) {

         }

DESCRIPTION

       This object can transform Bio::Align::AlignI objects to and from selex flat file
       databases.

APPENDIX

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

   next_aln
        Title   : next_aln
        Usage   : $aln = $stream->next_aln()
        Function: returns the next alignment in the stream. Tries to read *all* selex
                 It reads all non whitespace characters in the alignment
                 area. For selexs with weird gaps (eg ~~~) map them by using
                 $al->map_chars('~','-')
        Returns : L<Bio::Align::AlignI> object
        Args    : NONE

   write_aln
        Title   : write_aln
        Usage   : $stream->write_aln(@aln)
        Function: writes the $aln object into the stream in selex format
        Returns : 1 for success and 0 for error
        Args    : L<Bio::Align::AlignI> object
