       Bio::SearchIO::XML::PsiBlastHandler - XML Handler for NCBI Blast PSIBLAST XML parsing.


         # This is not to be used directly.


       This is the XML handler for BLAST PSIBLAST XML parsing. Currently it passes elements off
       to the event handler, which is ultimately responsible for Bio::Search object generation.

       This was recently split off from the original code for Bio::SearchIO::blastxml primarily
       for maintenance purposes.


       In addition to parts of the Bio:: hierarchy, this module uses:


       which comes with the XML::SAX distribution.
