NAME

       Bio::SeqIO::game::gameSubs -- a base class for game-XML parsing

SYNOPSIS

       Not used directly

DESCRIPTION

       A bag of tricks for game-XML parsing.  The PerlSAX handler methods were stolen from Chris
       Mungall's XML base class, which he stole from Ken MacLeod's XML::Handler::Subs
