Supposed to handle a combination of site matrices and/or their
corresponding sequence matches (instances). This object inherits from
Bio::Matrix::PSM::SiteMatrix, so you can use the respective
methods. It may hold also an array of Bio::Matrix::PSM::InstanceSite
object, but you will have to retrieve these through
Bio::Matrix::PSM::Psm->instances method (see below). To some extent
this is an expanded SiteMatrix object, holding data from analysis that
also deal with sequence matches of a particular matrix. This design is a bit of a compromise, so it might be a temporary
solution I am mixing PSM with PSM sequence matches Though they are
very closely related, I am not satisfied by the way this is
implemented here. Heikki suggested different objects when one has
something like meme But does this mean we have to write a different
objects for mast, meme, transfac, theiresias, etc.? To me the best
way is to return SiteMatrix object + arrray of InstanceSite objects
and then mast will return undef for SiteMatrix and transfac will
return undef for InstanceSite. Probably I cannot see some other design
issues that might arise from such approach, but it seems more
straightforward. Hilmar does not like this beacause it is an
exception from the general BioPerl rules Should I leave this as an
option? Also the header rightfully belongs the driver object, and
could be retrieved as hashes. I do not think it can be done any other
way, unless we want to create even one more object with very unclear
Methods description

 Title   : new
Usage : my $psm= Bio::Matrix::PSM::Psm->new( -pA=>\@pA,-pC=>\@pC,-pG=>\@pG,
-IC=>$ic, -width=>$width,
Function: Creates a new Bio::Matrix::PSM::Psm object
Throws :
Example :
Returns : Bio::Matrix::PSM::Psm object
Args : hash
 Title   : instances
Usage : my @instances=@{$psm->instances};
Function: Gets/sets the instances (Bio::Matrix::PSM::InstanceSite objects)
associated with the Psm object
Throws :
Example :
Returns : array reference (Bio::Matrix::PSM::InstanceSite objects)
Args : array reference (Bio::Matrix::PSM::InstanceSite objects)
 Title   :  matrix
Usage : my $matrix=$psm->matrix;
Function: Gets/sets the SiteMatrix related information
Throws :
Example :
Returns : Bio::Matrix::PSM::SiteMatrix objects
Args : Bio::Matrix::PSM::SiteMatrix objects
 Title   : header
Usage : my %header=$psm->header;
my $ic=$psm->header('IC');
Function: Gets the general information, common for most files, dealing
with PSM such as information content (IC), score (e-value,
etc.), number of sites (sites) and width. This list may
expand. The current list should be in
@Bio::Matrix::PSM::Psm::HEADER. Returns undef if an argument
is supplied that is not in @Bio::Matrix::PSM::meme::HEADER.
Throws :
Example :
Returns : hash or string
Args : string (IC, e_val...)
