bp_meta_gff.pl(1) Get/set Bio::DB::GFF meta-data


# set the following meta data values
% bp_meta_gff.pl -d testdb tag1=value1 tag2=value2
# get the indicated meta data value
% bp_meta_gff.pl -d testdb tag1 tag2


This script gets or sets metadata in a Bio::DB::GFF database. Not all adaptors support this operation! To set a series of tags, pass a set of tag=value pairs to the script. To get the contents of a series of tags, pass the bare tag names.

The output from the get operation will be an easily parseable set of tag=value pairs, one per line.


Command-line options can be abbreviated to single-letter options. e.g. -d instead of --database.

   --database <dsn>      Mysql database name (default dbi:mysql:test)
   --adaptor <adaptor>   Mysql adaptor (default dbi::mysqlopt)
   --user    <user>      Username for mysql authentication
   --pass    <password>  Password for mysql authentication
