|File||This provides access to local Medline entries by reading from a flat file. The stream will return a Stone corresponding to each of the entries in the file, starting from the top of the file and working downward. The parameter is the path to the local file.|
This section lists the public methods that the Boulder::Medline class makes available.
new() # Local fetch via File $ml=new Boulder::Medline(-accessor => File, -param => /data/medline/medline.txt);
The new() method creates a new Boulder::Medline stream on the accessor provided. The only possible accessors is <B>FileB>. If successful, the method returns the stream object. Otherwise it returns undef.
new() takes the following arguments:
-accessor Name of the accessor to use -param Parameters to pass to the accessor
get() The get() method is inherited from Boulder::Stream, and simply returns the next parsed Medline Stone, or undef if there is nothing more to fetch. It has the same semantics as the parent class, including the ability to restrict access to certain top-level tags. put() The put() method is inherited from the parent Boulder::Stream class, and will write the passed Stone to standard output in Boulder format. This means that it is currently not possible to write a Boulder::Medline object back into Medline flatfile form.
The tags returned by the parsing operation are taken from the MEDLARS definition file MEDDOC.DOC
These are tags that appear at the top level of the parsed Medline entry.
