NAME

       RG::Blast::Parser - fast NCBI BLAST parser

SYNOPSIS

         use Data::Dumper;
         use RG::Blast::Parser;

         my $parser = RG::Blast::Parser->new(); # read from STDIN

         open( EXAMPLE, '<', '/usr/share/doc/librg-blast-parser-perl/examples/converged.ali' ) || confess($!);
         my $parser = RG::Blast::Parser->new( \*EXAMPLE, "converged.ali" ); # read from EXAMPLE, use name "converged.ali" in error messages

         while( my $res = $parser->parse() )
         {
           print Dumper( $res );
         }

         eval {
           my $res = $parser->parse();
           # ...
         };
         if( $@ && $@ =~ /^parser error/ ) { warn("failed to parse blast result - exception caught"); }

DESCRIPTION

       This package contains perl binding for a very fast C/C++ library for NCBI BLAST -m 0
       (default) output parsing.  BLAST results are returned in a convenient hash structure.

       Multiple results may be concatenated for input.  One result is parsed and returned at a
       time.

CONSTRUCTOR

       new( [FILEHANDLE, [NAME]] )
           Creates an "RG::Blast::Parser".  Blast results are read from FILEHANDLE, STDIN by
           default.  The input stream may be named NAME in error messages (default: "STDIN").

METHODS

       parse( [TRACE_PARSING, [TRACE_SCANNING]] )
           Parse one complete BLAST result and return it.  If no results on input stream, returns
           "undef".  In case of parser error it die()s with an (at present not very useful) error
           message.

           The following structure is returned in a hash reference:

             {
               blast_version =>    STRING,
               references =>       [ STRING, ... ],

             }

           If you want tracing for parsing and scanning, you can enable them using the parameters
           of this call.

       result()
           Returns the last BLAST result parsed or "undef" if no last result.

       get_trace_scanning()
           Returns scan trace state as a Boolean value.

       set_trace_scanning( BOOLEAN )
           Set scan trace - debugging aid.
