SYNOPSISDo not use this module directly. Use it via the Bio::SeqIO class.
DESCRIPTIONThis object can transform Bio::Seq objects to and from abi trace files. To optionally read the trace graph data (which can be used to draw chromatographs, for instance), set the optional '-get_trace_data' flag or the get_trace_data method to a value evaluating to TRUE.

APPENDIXThe rest of the documentation details each of the object methods. Internal methods are usually preceded with a _
Title : next_seq Usage : $seq = $stream->next_seq() Function: returns the next sequence in the stream Returns : Bio::Seq::Quality object Args : NONE
Title : write_seq Usage : $stream->write_seq(@seq) Function: writes the $seq object into the stream Returns : 1 for success and 0 for error Args : Bio::Seq object
Title : get_trace_data Usage : $stream->get_trace_data(1) Function: set boolean flag to retrieve the trace data (possibly for output) Returns : bool value, TRUE = retrieve trace data (default FALSE) Args : bool value
