NAME

       TFBS::SitePairSet - a set of TFBS::SitePair objects

SYNOPSIS

           my $site_pair_set = TFBS::SitePairSet->new(@list_of_site_pair_objects);

           # add a TFBS::SitePair object to set:

           $site_pair_set->add_site_pair($site_pair_obj);

           # append another TFBS::SitePairSet contents:

           $site_pair_set->add_site_pair_set($site_pair_obj);

           # create an iterator:

           my $it = $site_pair_set->Iterator(-sort_by => 'start');

DESCRIPTION

       TFBS::SitePairSet is an aggregate class that contains a collection of TFBS::SitePair
       objects. It can be created anew and filled with TFBS::Site::Pair object. It is also
       returned by search_aln() method call of TFBS::PatternI subclasses (e.g.
       TFBS::Matrix::PWM).

       Please send bug reports and other comments to the author.

APPENDIX

       The rest of the documentation details each of the object methods. Internal methods are
       preceded with an underscore.

   size
        Title   : size
        Usage   : my $size = $sitepairset->size()
        Function: returns a number of TFBS::SitePair objects contained in the set
        Returns : a scalar (integer)
        Args    : none

   add_site_pair
        Title   : add_site_pair
        Usage   : $sitepairset->add_site_pair($site_pair_object)
                  $sitepairset->add_site_pair(@list_of_site_pair_objects)
        Function: adds TFBS::SitePair objects to an existing TFBS::SitePairSet object
        Returns : $sitepairset object (usually ignored)
        Args    : A list of TFBS::SitePair objects to add

   add_site_pair_set
        Title   : add_site_pair_set
        Usage   : $sitepairset->add_site_pair_set($site_pair_set_object)
                  $sitepairset->add_site_pair(@list_of_site_pair_set_objects)
        Function: adds the contents of other TFBS::SitePairSet objects
                  to an existing TFBS::SitePairSet object
        Returns : $sitepairset object (usually ignored)
        Args    : A list of TFBS::SitePairSet objects whose contents should be
                  added to $sitepairset

   Iterator
         Title   : Iterator
         Usage   : my $it = $sitepairset->Iterator(-sort_by=>'start');
                   while (my $site_pair = $it->next()) { #...
         Function: Returns an iterator object, used to iterate thorugh elements
                   (TFBS::SitePair objects)
         Returns : a TFBS::_Iterator object
         Args    : -sort_by # optional - currently it accepts
                           #   (default sort order in parenthetse)
                           #    'name' (pattern name, alphabetically)
                           #    'ID' (pattern/matrix ID, alphabetically)
                           #    'start' (site start in sequence,
                           #             numerically,increasing order)
                           #    'end' (site end in sequence,
                           #           numerically, increasing order)
                           #    'score' (1st site in pair,
                           #             numerically, decreasing order)
                   -reverse # optional - reverses the default sorting order if true

                 : my $siteset2 = $sitepairset->set2()
         Function: Returns individual TFBS::SiteSet objects, from the site set pair
         Returns : A TFBS::SiteSet object
         Args    : none
