NAME

       Bio::SearchIO::EventHandlerI - An abstract Event Handler for Search Result parsing

SYNOPSIS

       # do not use this object directly it is an interface # See
       Bio::SearchIO::SearchResultEventBuilder for an implementation

           use Bio::SearchIO::SearchResultEventBuilder;
           my $handler = Bio::SearchIO::SearchResultEventBuilder->new();

DESCRIPTION

       This interface describes the basic methods needed to handle Events thrown from parsing a
       Search Result such as FASTA, BLAST, or HMMer.
