Bio::Grep::Root - Superclass for all Bio::Grep* packages

DESCRIPTION

This superclass adds some useful methods to all Bio::Grep packages.

METHODS

is_integer($var_to_check, 'Description')

Returns the variable, but it is now not tainted anymore. Throws an exception if the specified variable is not an integer. If a second argument is passed, it will be used in the exception text.

is_real($var_to_check, 'Description')

Returns the variable, but it is now not tainted anymore. Throws an exception if the specified variable is not a number. If a second argument is passed, it will be used in the exception text.

is_word($var_to_check, 'Description')

Returns the variable, but it is now not tainted anymore. Throws an exception if the specified variable is not a word. If a second argument is passed, it will be used in the exception text.

is_path($var_to_check, 'Description')

Returns the variable, but it is now not tainted anymore. Throws an exception if the specified variable is not a valid path (It is word but accepts also '/'). If a second argument is passed, it will be used in the exception text.

is_sentence($var_to_check, 'Description')

Returns the variable, but it is now not tainted anymore. Throws an exception if the specified variable is not a valid sentence (It is word but accepts also '/:,;|'). If a second argument is passed, it will be used in the exception text.

WARNING: make sure that command line arguments are quoted ( my $command = "... '$sentence' ")
