The rest of the documentation details each of the object methods. Internal methods are usually preceded with a _

 Title   : program_version
 Usage   : $version = $bedtools_fac->program_version()
 Function: Returns the program version (if available)

 Note    : this works around the WrapperBase::version() method conflicting with

           getter/setters for these)
