Bio::Ontology::Path - a path for an ontology term graph
$path = Bio::Ontology::Path->new( -identifier => "16847", -subject_term => $subj, -object_term => $obj, -predicate_term => $pred, -distance => 3 );
This is a basic implementation of Bio::Ontology::PathI. Essiantially this is a very thin extension of Bio::Ontology::Relationship. It basically adds a method distance().
Mailing Lists User feedback is an integral part of the evolution of this and other Bioperl modules. Send your comments and suggestions preferably to the Bioperl mailing lists Your participation is much appreciated. firstname.lastname@example.org - General discussion http://bioperl.org/wiki/Mailing_lists - About the mailing lists Support Please direct usage questions or support issues to the mailing list: email@example.com 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.

The rest of the documentation details each of the object methods. Internal methods are usually preceded with a _ new Title : new Usage : $rel = Bio::Ontology::Path->new(-identifier => "16847", -subject_term => $subject, -object_term => $object, -predicate_term => $type ); -distance => 3 ); Function: Creates a new Bio::Ontology::Path. Returns : A new Bio::Ontology::Path object. Args : -identifier => the identifier of this relationship [scalar] -subject_term => the subject term [Bio::Ontology::TermI] -object_term => the object term [Bio::Ontology::TermI] -predicate_term => the predicate term [Bio::Ontology::TermI] -distance => the distance between subject and object init Title : init() Usage : $rel->init(); Function: Initializes this Path to all undef. Returns : Args : distance Title : distance Usage : $obj->distance($newval) Function: Get/set the distance between the two terms connected by this path. Note that modifying the distance may not be meaningful. The implementation here is not connected to any graph engine, so changing an existing value may simply render the attribute's value wrong. Example : Returns : value of distance (a scalar) Args : on set, new value (a scalar or undef, optional) to_string Title : to_string() Usage : print $rel->to_string(); Function: to_string method for Path. Returns : A string representation of this Path. Args :
