       string

SYNOPSIS

        # Do not use directly, see Bio::Factory::LocationFactory for example
        use Bio::Factory::FTLocationFactory;
        my $locfact = Bio::Factory::FTLocationFactory->new();
        my $location = $locfact->from_string("1..200");
        print $location->start(), " ", $location->end(), " ", $location->strand,"\n";

APPENDIX

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

   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.

                  Different implementations may support different encodings. An
                  example of a commonly used encoding is the Genbank feature table
                  encoding of locations.
        Example :
        Returns : A Bio::LocationI implementing object.
        Args    : A string.
