=head1 NAME

Bio::Tools::Seg - parse C<seg> output 


  use Bio::Tools::Seg;
  my $parser = Bio::Tools::Seg->(-file => 'seg.fasta');
  while ( my $f = $parser->next_result ) {
    if ($f->score < 1.5) {
      print $f->location->to_FTstring, " is low complexity\n";


C<seg> identifies low-complexity regions on a protein sequence.
It is usually part of the C<WU-BLAST> and C<InterProScan> packages.

The L<Bio::Tools::Seg> module will only parse the "fasta" output 
modes of C<seg>, i.e. C<seg -l> (low complexity regions only), 
C<seg -h> (high complexity regions only), or C<seg -a> (both low 
and high). 

It creates a L<Bio::SeqFeature::Generic> for each FASTA-like entry 
found in the input file. It is up to the user to appropriately filter 
these using the feature's score.


=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
the Bioperl mailing list.  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.

Internal methods are usually preceded with a _
