Bio::Factory::MapFactoryI(3) A Factory for getting markers


# get a Map Factory somehow likely from Bio::MapIO system
while( my $map = $mapin->next_map ) {
print "map name is ", $map->name, " length is ",
$map->length, " ", $map->units, "\n";


This interface describes the necessary minimum methods for getting Maps from a data stream. It also supports writing Map data back to a stream.
