       Bio::Map::PositionHandler - A Position Handler Implementation

	   # This is used by modules when they want to implement being a
	   # Position or being something that has Positions (when they are
	   # a L<Bio::Map::EntityI>)

	   # Make a PositionHandler that knows about you
	   my $ph = Bio::Map::PositionHandler->new($self);

	   # Register with it so that it handles your Position-related needs

	   # If	you are	a position, get/set the	map you	are on and the marker you are
	   # for
	   my $map = $ph->map;
	   my $marker =	$ph->element;

	   # If	you are	a marker, add a	new position to	yourself

	   # And then get all your positions on	a particular map
	   foreach my $pos ($ph->get_positions($map)) {
	       # do something with this	Bio::Map::PositionI

	   # Or	find out what maps you exist on
	   my @maps = $ph->get_other_entities;

	   # The same applies if you were a map

       A Position Handler copes	with the coordination of different
       Bio::Map::EntityI objects, adding and removing them from	each other and
       knowning	who belongs to who. These relationships	between	objects	are
       based around shared Positions, hence PositionHandler.

       This PositionHandler is able to cope with Bio::Map::PositionI objects,
       Bio::Map::MappableI objects and Bio::Map::MapI objects.

   Mailing Lists
       User feedback is	an integral part of the	evolution of this and other
       Bioperl modules.	Send your comments and suggestions preferably to the
       Bioperl mailing list.  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 of
