database queries through DBI.

=head1 FEEDBACK

=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:

I<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.

# Let the code begin...

use vars qw(@ISA);

# Object preamble - inherits from Bio::Root::Root

use Bio::DB::Query::QueryResultI;
use Bio::Root::Root;

=head2 new

 Title   : new
 Usage   : my $obj = Bio::DB::Query::PrebuiltResult->new();
 Function: Builds a new Bio::DB::Query::PrebuiltResult object 
 Returns : an instance of Bio::DB::Query::PrebuiltResult
 Args    : named parameters
              -objs  a reference to an array of objects that should be
                     returned via next_object()



=cut

sub new {
    my($class,@args) = @_;

    my $self = $class->SUPER::new(@args);
    
    my ($objs, $adaptor, $fact, $nfks) =
	$self->_rearrange([qw(OBJS)], @args);
    
    $self->objs($objs) if $objs;

    return $self;
}


=head2 next_object

 Title   : next_object
 Usage   :
 Function: Obtain the next object from the result stream and return it.
 Example :
 Returns : A Bioperl object (implementing at least Bio::Root::RootI)
 Args    : none


=cut

sub next_object{
    my ($self) = @_;

    return shift(@{$self->objs()});
}

=head2 each_Object

 Title   : each_Object
 Usage   :
 Function: This is primarily a convenience method and in most implementations
           will just loop over next_object() and return an array of all
           objects.
 Example :
 Returns : A reference to an array of objects.
 Args    : Optionally, an anonymous function for filtering objects. If given,
           the function is passed one argument, the object to evaluate.
           The object will be included in the returned array if the function
           returns TRUE, and rejected otherwise.


=cut

sub each_Object{
    my ($self,$filter) = @_;

    my @objs = grep { $filter ? &$filter($_) : 1; } @{$self->objs()};
    $self->objs([]);

    return \@objs;
}

=head2 finish

 Title   : finish
 Usage   :
 Function: Indicate being finished with this result so that possibly used
           system resources can be released.
 Example :
 Returns : none
 Args    : none


=cut

sub finish{
    shift->objs([]);
}

=head2 objs

 Title   : objs
 Usage   : $obj->objs($newval)
 Function: Get/set the objects this result is going to return via next_object()
 Example : 
 Returns : value of objs (a reference to an array)
 Args    : new value (a reference to an array, optional)


=cut

sub objs{
    my ($self,$value) = @_;
    if( defined $value) {
	$self->{'objs'} = $value;
    }
    return $self->{'objs'} || [];
}
