Synopsis
    # do not use this module directly
# See Bio::Map::PositionHandler for an example of
# implementation.
Description
This interface describes the basic methods required for Position Handlers. A
Position Handler copes with the coordination of different Bio::Map::EntityI
objects, adding and removing them from each other and knowning who belongs to
who. These relationships between objects are based around shared Positions,
hence PositionHandler.

registercode    nextTop
 Title   : register
Usage : $position_handler->register();
Function: Ask this Position Handler to look after your entity relationships.
Returns : n/a
Args : none
indexcodeprevnextTop
 Title   : index
Usage : my $index = $position_handler->index();
Function: Get the unique registry index for yourself, generated during the
resistration process.
Returns : int
Args : none
get_entitycodeprevnextTop
 Title   : get_entity
Usage : my $entity = $position_handler->get_entity($index);
Function: Get the entity that corresponds to the supplied registry index.
Returns : Bio::Map::EntityI object
Args : int
mapcodeprevnextTop
 Title   : map
Usage : my $map = $position_handler->map();
$position_handler->map($map);
Function: Get/Set the map you are on. You must be a Position.
Returns : Bio::Map::MapI
Args : none to get, OR
new Bio::Map::MapI to set
elementcodeprevnextTop
 Title   : element
Usage : my $element = $position_handler->element();
$position_handler->element($element);
Function: Get/Set the map element you are for. You must be a Position.
Returns : Bio::Map::MappableI
Args : none to get, OR
new Bio::Map::MappableI to set
add_positionscodeprevnextTop
 Title   : add_positions
Usage : $position_handler->add_positions($pos1, $pos2, ...);
Function: Add some positions to yourself. You can't be a position.
Returns : n/a
Args : Array of Bio::Map::PositionI objects
get_positionscodeprevnextTop
 Title   : get_positions
Usage : my @positions = $position_handler->get_positions();
Function: Get all your positions. You can't be a Position.
Returns : Array of Bio::Map::PositionI objects
Args : none for all, OR
Bio::Map::EntityI object to limit the Positions to those that
are shared by you and this other entity.
purge_positionscodeprevnextTop
 Title   : purge_positions
Usage : $position_handler->purge_positions();
Function: Remove all positions from yourself. You can't be a Position.
Returns : n/a
Args : none to remove all, OR
Bio::Map::PositionI object to remove only that entity, OR
Bio::Map::EntityI object to limit the removal to those Positions that
are shared by you and this other entity.
get_other_entitiescodeprevnextTop
 Title   : get_other_entities
Usage : my @entities = $position_handler->get_other_entities();
Function: Get all the entities that share your Positions. You can't be a
Position.
Returns : Array of Bio::Map::EntityI objects
Args : none

Please direct usage questions or support issues to the mailing list:
bioperl-l@bioperl.org
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.
