       Bio::Index::Swissprot - Interface for indexing one or more Swissprot

	 # Make	an index for one or more Swissprot files:

	   use Bio::Index::Swissprot;
	   use strict;

	   my $index_file_name = shift;
	   my $inx = Bio::Index::Swissprot->new(
	       -filename => $index_file_name,
	       -write_flag => 1);

	 # Print out several sequences present in the index in Genbank
	 # format:

	   use Bio::Index::Swissprot;
	   use Bio::SeqIO;
	   use strict;

	   my $out = Bio::SeqIO->new( -format => 'genbank',
				      -fh => \*STDOUT );
	   my $index_file_name = shift;
	   my $inx = Bio::Index::Swissprot->new(-filename => $index_file_name);

	   foreach my $id (@ARGV) {
	       my $seq = $inx->fetch($id); # Returns a Bio::Seq	object

	   # alternatively
	   my ($id, $acc);
	   my $seq1 = $inx->get_Seq_by_id($id);
	   my $seq2 = $inx->get_Seq_by_acc($acc);

       By default the index that is created uses the AC	and ID identifiers as
       keys. This module inherits functions for	managing dbm files from,	and provides the basic functionality for
       indexing	Swissprot files	and retrieving Sequence	objects	from them. For
       best results 'use strict'.

       You can also set	or customize the unique	key used to retrieve by
       writing your own	function and calling the id_parser() method.  For

	  # make the index

	  # here is where the retrieval	key is specified
	  sub get_id {
	     my	$line =	shift;
	     $line =~ /^KW\s+([A-Z]+)/i;

   Mailing Lists
       User feedback is	an integral part of the	evolution of this and other
       Bioperl modules.	Send your comments and suggestions preferably to one
       of the Bioperl mailing lists.  Your participation is much appreciated.			- General discussion	- About	the mailing lists

       Please direct usage questions or	support	issues to the mailing list:

       rather than to the module maintainer directly. Many experienced and
       reponsive experts will be able look at the problem and quickly address
       it. Please include a thorough description of the	problem	with code and
       data examples if	at all possible.

   Reporting Bugs
       Report bugs to the Bioperl bug tracking system to help us keep track
