       Bio::SearchIO::FastHitEventBuilder - Event Handler for SearchIO events.


         # Do not use this object directly, this object is part of the SearchIO
         # event based parsing system.

         # to use the FastHitEventBuilder do this

         use Bio::SearchIO::FastHitEventBuilder;

         my $searchio = Bio::SearchIO->new(-format => $format, -file => $file);


         while( my $r = $searchio->next_result ) {
          while( my $h = $r->next_hit ) {
           # note that Hits will NOT have HSPs


       This object handles Search Events generated by the SearchIO classes and build appropriate
       Bio::Search::* objects from them.  This object is intended for lightweight parsers which
       only want Hits and not deal with the overhead of HSPs.  It is a lot faster than the
       standard parser event handler but of course you are getting less information and less
       objects out.


   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 list.  Your participation
       is much appreciated.

       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.
