NAME

       Bio::PopGen::IO::hapmap - A parser for HapMap output data

SYNOPSIS

         # Do not use directly, use through the Bio::PopGen::IO driver

         use Bio::PopGen::IO;
         my $io = Bio::PopGen::IO->new(-format => 'hapmap',
                                      -file   => 'data.hapmap');

         # Some IO might support reading in a population at a time

         my @population;
         while( my $ind = $io->next_individual ) {
             push @population, $ind;
         }

DESCRIPTION

       A driver module for Bio::PopGen::IO for parsing hapmap data.

   Support
       Please direct usage questions or support issues to the mailing list:

       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.

       usually preceded with a _

   new
        Title   : new
        Usage   : my $obj = Bio::PopGen::IO::hapmap->new();
        Function: Builds a new Bio::PopGen::IO::hapmap object
        Returns : an instance of Bio::PopGen::IO::hapmap
        Args    : [optional, these are the current defaults]
                  -field_delimiter => ','
                  -allele_delimiter=> '\s+'
                  -no_header       => 0,
                  -starting_column => 11

   flag
        Title   : flag
        Usage   : $obj->flag($flagname,$newval)
        Function: Get/Set the flag value
        Returns : value of a flag (a boolean)
        Args    : A flag name, currently we expect
                  'no_header', 'field_delimiter', or 'allele_delimiter'
                  on set, new value (a boolean or undef, optional)

   next_individual
        Title   : next_individual
        Usage   : my $ind = $popgenio->next_individual;
        Function: Retrieve the next individual from a dataset
        Returns : A Bio::PopGen::IndividualI object
        Args    : none

       See Bio::PopGen::IndividualI

   next_population
        Title   : next_population
        Usage   : my $ind = $popgenio->next_population;
        Function: Retrieve the next population from a dataset
        Returns : Bio::PopGen::PopulationI object
        Args    : none
        Note    : Many implementation will not implement this
