NAME

       Bio::Factory::FTLocationFactory - A FeatureTable Location Parser

SYNOPSIS

           # parse a string into a location object
           $loc = Bio::Factory::FTLocationFactory->from_string("join(100..200,
                                                                400..500");

DESCRIPTION

       Implementation of string-encoded location parsing for the Genbank feature table encoding
       of locations.

       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.

APPENDIX

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

   new
        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    :

   from_string
        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.

   _parse_location
        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
