Bio::DB::SeqFeature::NormalizedTableFeatureI(3) Interface for normalized features whose hierarchy is stored in a table




This is an extremely simple interface that contains a single method, subfeatures_are_stored_in_a_table(). This method returns a true value.

Bio::DB::SeqFeature::Store feature classes will inherit this interface to flag that in addition to being able to store features in a normalized way, they will use the Bio::DB::SeqFeature::Store database to record their parent/child relationships. A class that inherits from NormalizedTableFeatureI will also inherit from NormalizedFeatureI, as the first is a subclass of the second.


None, but the whole class design might be flawed.
