=head1 NAME

Bio::ClusterIO - Handler for Cluster Formats


  #NB: This example is unigene specific

  use Bio::ClusterIO;

  $stream  = Bio::ClusterIO->new('-file' => "Hs.data", 
                                 '-format' => "unigene");
  # note: we quote -format to keep older perl's from complaining.

  while ( my $in = $stream->next_cluster() ) {
      print $in->unigene_id() . "\n";
      while ( my $sequence = $in->next_seq() ) {
          print $sequence->accession_number() . "\n";
  # Parsing errors are printed to STDERR.


The ClusterIO module works with the ClusterIO format module to read
various cluster formats such as NCBI UniGene.


=head2 Bio::ClusterIO-E<gt>new()

   $str = Bio::ClusterIO->new(-file => 'filename',

The new() class method constructs a new Bio::ClusterIO object.  The
returned object can be used to retrieve or print cluster
objects. new() accepts the following parameters:

=over 4

=item -file

A file path to be opened for reading.

=item -format

Specify the format of the file.  Supported formats include:

   unigene		*.data	UniGene build files.
   dbsnp		*.xml	dbSNP XML files

If no format is specified and a filename is given, then the module
will attempt to deduce it from the filename.  If this is unsuccessful,
the main UniGene build format is assumed.

The format name is case insensitive.  'UNIGENE', 'UniGene' and
'unigene' are all supported, as are dbSNP, dbsnp, and DBSNP



See below for more detailed summaries.  The main methods are:

=head2 $cluster = $str-E<gt>next_cluster()

Fetch the next cluster from the stream.


These I've left in here because they were in the SeqIO
module. Feedback appreciated. There they provide the tie interface.
See L<perltie> for more details.


=head2 Mailing Lists

User feedback is an integral part of the evolution of this
and other Bioperl modules. Send your comments and suggestions preferably
 to one of the Bioperl mailing lists.
Your participation is much appreciated.

=head2 Support 

Please direct usage questions or support issues to the mailing list:


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.

=head2 Reporting Bugs

Report bugs to the Bioperl bug tracking system to help us keep track
the bugs and their resolution.  Bug reports can be submitted via the

 Title   : format
 Usage   : $format = $stream->format()
 Function: Get the cluster format
 Returns : cluster format

Exception $@
