NAME

       Bio::Ontology::DocumentRegistry - Keep track of where to find ontologies.  Allows lookups
       by name.

SYNOPSIS

         my $registry = Bio::Ontology::DocumentRegistry->get_instance();
         my($ont,$def,$fmt) = $registry->documents('Sequence Ontology');

         my $io = Bio::OntologyIO->new(-url => $ont,
                                       -defs_url => $def,
                                       -format => $fmt);
         my $so = $io->next_ontology();
         #...

DESCRIPTION

       Do not use this directly, use Bio::Ontology::OntologyStore instead.
       Bio::Ontology::OntologyStore uses Bio::Ontology::DocumentRegistry to load and cache
       ontologies as object graphs, you can just ask it for what you want by name.  See
       Bio::Ontology::OntologyStore for details.
