Bio::Tools::Analysis::SimpleAnalysisBase - abstract superclass for SimpleAnalysis implementations


# not to be run directly


This class is a generic implementation of SimpleAnalysisI and should be used as a base class for specific implementations.

Modules implementing SimpleAnalysisBase only need to provide specific _init(), _run() and result() methods, plus any get/set methods for parameters to the analysis program.

Mailing Lists

User feedback is an integral part of the evolution of this and other Bioperl modules. Send your comments and suggestions preferably to one of the Bioperl mailing lists. Your participation is much appreciated.                  - General discussion  - About the mailing lists


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.

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


 Usage   : $job->new(...)
 Returns : a new analysis object, 
 Args    : none (but an implementation may choose
           to add arguments representing parameters for the analysis
           program. Each key value of must have a method implemented
           for it in a subclass. A seq () method is provided here as
           this will probably be needed by all sequence analysis programs


 Usage   : $job->seq()
 Returns : a Bio::PrimarySeqI implementing sequence object, or void
 Args    : None, or a Bio::PrimarySeqI implementing object


    Usage     : $analysis->analysis_name();
    Returns   : The analysis name
    Arguments : none


    Usage    :  $analysis->analysis_spec();
    Returns  :  a hash reference to  a hash of analysis parameters. See
                Bio::SimpleAnalysisI for a list of recommended key values.
    Arguments:  none


    Usage     : $analysis->clear();
    Returns   : true value on success
    Arguments : none
    Purpose   : to remove raw results from a previous analysis so that
                an analysis can be repeated with different parameters.


    Usage     : $analysis->input_spec();
    Returns   : a  reference to  an array of  hashes of analysis parameters. See
                Bio::SimpleAnalysisI for a list of recommended key values.
    Arguments : none


    Usage     : $analysis->result_spec();
    Returns   : a  reference to  a   hashes of resultformats. See
                Bio::SimpleAnalysisI for a list of recommended key values. 
                The key values can be used as parameters to the result() 
                method, the values provide descriptions.
    Arguments : none
