       Bio::DB::Tagger::Tag -- Authored tags


        use Bio::DB::Tagger::Tag;

        my $tag = Bio::DB::Tagger::Tag->new(-name   => 'venue',
                                            -value  => 'mermaid parade',
                                            -author => '');
        print $tag,"\n";          # use like a string
        print $tag->name,"\n";    # object interface
        print $tag->value,"\n";   # object interface
        print $tag->author,"\n";


       This is a simple object tag interface that provides string-like objects that have authors
       assigned to them. For use in attributing tags to authors in the Bio::DB::Tagger module.

       $tag = Bio::DB::Tagger::Tag->new(-name=>$tag, -author=>$author [,-value=> $value,
           Create a new tag with the indicated value and author.

       $name = $tag->name
           Return the tag's name.

       $value = $tag->value;
           Return the tag's value.

       $timestamp = $tag->modified
           Return the tag's modification timestamp.

       $author = $tag->author;
           Return the tag's author

       $int = $tag->cmp($tag,$reversed)
           Perform a string cmp() operation on another tag or a string.  If a string is provided,
           then operation is on tag name only.  If a tag is provided, then operation is on both
           tag and value.

       $string = $tag->asString
           Convert into a name:value string
