 Usage   : my $wrapper = Bio::Tools::Run::RNAMotif->new(@params)
 Function: creates a new RNAMotif factory
 Returns:  Bio::Tools::Run::RNAMotif
 Args    : list of parameters
           -tempfile        => set tempfile flag (default 0)
           -outfile_name    => set file to send output to (default none)


 Title   : program_name
 Usage   : $factory>program_name()
 Function: holds the program name
 Returns:  string
 Args    : None


 Title   : program_dir
 Usage   : $factory->program_dir(@params)
 Function: returns the program directory, obtained from ENV variable.
 Returns:  string
 Args    :


 Title   : version
 Usage   : $v = $prog->version();
 Function: Determine the version number of the program
 Example :
 Returns : float or undef
 Args    : none


 Title   :  run
 Usage   :  $obj->run($seqFile)
 Function:  Runs ERPIN programs and returns Bio::SearchIO
 Returns :  
 Args    :  Must pass Bio::PrimarySeqI's or file names


 Title   : tempfile
 Usage   : $obj->tempfile(1)
 Function: Set tempfile flag.  When set, writes output to a tempfile; this
           is overridden by outfile_name() if set

 Returns :  string of params
 Args    :


 Title   : _writeSeqFile
 Usage   : obj->_writeSeqFile($seq)
 Function: Internal(not to be used directly)
 Returns : writes passed Seq objects to tempfile, to be used as input
