NAME

       Bio::SeqIO::ace - ace sequence input/output stream

SYNOPSIS

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

DESCRIPTION

       This object can transform Bio::Seq objects to and from ace file format.  It only parses a
       DNA or Peptide objects contained in the ace file, producing PrimarySeq objects from them.
       All other objects in the files will be ignored.  It doesn't attempt to parse any
       annotation attached to the containing Sequence or Protein objects, which would probably be
       impossible, since everyone's ACeDB schema can be different.

       It won't parse ace files containing Timestamps correctly either.  This can easily be added
       if considered necessary.

FEEDBACK

   Mailing Lists
       User feedback is an integral part of the evolution of this and other Bioperl modules. Send
       your comments and suggestions preferably to one of the Bioperl mailing lists.  Your
       participation is much appreciated.

   Support
       Please direct usage questions or support issues to the mailing list:

       bioperl-l@bioperl.org

       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 _

   next_seq
        Title   : next_seq
        Usage   : $seq = $stream->next_seq()
        Function: returns the next sequence in the stream
        Returns : Bio::Seq object
        Args    : NONE

   write_seq
        Title   : write_seq
        Usage   : $stream->write_seq(@seq)
        Function: writes the $seq object into the stream
        Returns : 1 for success and 0 for error
        Args    : Bio::Seq object(s)
