Bio::DB::Flat::BDB - Interface for BioHackathon standard BDB-indexed flat file
#You should not be using this module directly.
This object provides the basic mechanism to associate positions in files with
primary and secondary name spaces. Unlike Bio::Index::Abstract (see
Bio::Index::Abstract), this is specialized to work with the BerkeleyDB-indexed
"common" flat file format worked out at the 2002 BioHackathon.
This object is the guts to the mechanism, which will be used by the specific
objects inheriting from it.
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.
