Bio::Tools::Run::GenericParameters(3) An object for the parameters used to run programs


my $void = $obj->set_parameter("parameter_name","parameter_value");
my $value = $obj->get_parameter("parameter_name");


This is a basic container to hold the parameters used to run a program. This module may get incorporated into the more generic Bio::Tools::Run framework in bioperl-run distribution.
