Bio::DB::GFF::Adaptor::memory(3) User Contributed Perl Documentation Bio::DB::GFF::Adaptor::memory(3)

Bio::DB::GFF::Adaptor::memory -- Bio::DB::GFF database adaptor for in-memory databases

  use Bio::DB::GFF;
  my $db = Bio::DB::GFF->new(-adaptor=> 'memory',
                             -gff    => 'my_features.gff',
                             -fasta  => 'my_dna.fa'
  my $db = Bio::DB::GFF->new(-adaptor=>'memory');
See Bio::DB::GFF for other methods.

This adaptor implements an in-memory version of Bio::DB::GFF. It can be used to store and retrieve SHORT GFF files. It inherits from Bio::DB::GFF.

Use Bio::DB::GFF-> new() to construct new instances of this class. Three named arguments are recommended:
   Argument         Description
   -adaptor         Set to "memory" to create an instance of this class.
   -gff             Read the indicated file or directory of .gff file.
   -fasta           Read the indicated file or directory of fasta files.
   -dir             Indicates a directory containing .gff and .fa files
If you use the -dir option and the indicated directory is writable by the current process, then this library will create a FASTA file index that greatly diminishes the memory usage of this module.
Alternatively you may create an empty in-memory object using just the -adaptor=>'memory' argument and then call the load_gff_file() and load_fasta_file() methods to load GFF and/or sequence information. This is recommended in CGI/mod_perl/fastCGI environments because these methods do not modify STDIN, unlike the constructor.

See Bio::DB::GFF for inherited methods.
