Bio::Search::Hit::HitFactory(3) A factory to create Bio::Search::Hit::HitI objects


use Bio::Search::Hit::HitFactory;
my $factory = Bio::Search::Hit::HitFactory->new();
my $resultobj = $factory->create(@args);


This is a general way of hiding the object creation process so that we can dynamically change the objects that are created by the SearchIO parser depending on what format report we are parsing.

This object is for creating new Hits.
