Bio::DB::Query::QueryResultI - DESCRIPTION of Interface
No package variables defined.
Give standard usage here
This outlines the basic interface for a query result that returns objects,
not rows. Basically, it is a stream of objects, similarly in spirit to the
other Bioperl streaming interfaces like, e.g., Bio::SeqIO.
There is no specific notion here of a schema or database.
Title : next_object
Function: Obtain the next object from the result stream and return it.
Returns : A Bioperl object (implementing at least Bio::Root::RootI)
Args : none
Title : each_Object
Function: This is primarily a convenience method and in most implementations
will just loop over next_object() and return an array of all
Returns : A reference to an array of objects.
Args : Optionally, an anonymous function for filtering objects. If given,
the function is passed one argument, the object to evaluate.
The object will be included in the returned array if the function
returns TRUE, and rejected otherwise.
Title : finish
Function: Indicate being finished with this result so that possibly used
system resources can be released.
Returns : none
Args : none
