NAME

       Bio::Annotation::Target - Provides an object which represents a target (ie, a similarity
       hit) from one object to something in another database

SYNOPSIS

          $target1 = Bio::Annotation::Target->new(-target_id  => 'F321966.1',
                                                 -start      => 1,
                                                 -end        => 200,
                                                 -strand     => 1,   # or -1
                                                );

          # or

          $target2 = Bio::Annotation::Target->new();
          $target2->target_id('Q75IM5');
          $target2->start(7);
          # ... etc ...

          # Target is-a Bio::AnnotationI object, can be added to annotation
          # collections, e.g. the one on features or seqs
          $feat->annotation->add_Annotation('Target', $target2);

DESCRIPTION

       Provides an object which represents a target (ie, a similarity hit) from one object to
       something in another database without prescribing what is in the other database

APPENDIX

       The rest of the documentation details each of the object methods. Internal methods are
       usually preceded with a _

AnnotationI implementing functions

   as_text
        Title   : as_text
        Usage   :
        Function:
        Example :
        Returns :
        Args    :

   display_text
        Title   : display_text
        Usage   : my $str = $ann->display_text();
        Function: returns a string. Unlike as_text(), this method returns a string
                  formatted as would be expected for te specific implementation.

                  One can pass a callback as an argument which allows custom text
                  generation; the callback is passed the current instance and any text
                  returned
        Example :
        Returns : a string
        Args    : [optional] callback

   tagname
        Title   : tagname
        Usage   : $obj->tagname($newval)
        Function: Get/set the tagname for this annotation value.

                  Setting this is optional. If set, it obviates the need to
                  provide a tag to Bio::AnnotationCollectionI when adding
                  this object. When obtaining an AnnotationI object from the
                  collection, the collection will set the value to the tag
                  under which it was stored unless the object has a tag
                  stored already.

        Example :
        Returns : value of tagname (a scalar)
        Args    : new value (a scalar, optional)

Specific accessors for Targets

   target_id
       Usage
             $obj->target_id()        #get existing value
             $obj->target_id($newval) #set new value

       Function
       Returns
           value of target_id (a scalar)

       Arguments
           new value of target_id (to set)
