Bio::Tools::Run::AlignUser:Contributed PerBio::Tools::Run::Alignment::Proda(3)

       Bio::Tools::Run::Alignment::Proda - Object for the calculation of sets
       of multiple sequence alignments from a set of unaligned sequences or
       alignments using	the Proda program.

	 # Build a Proda alignment factory
	 $factory = Bio::Tools::Run::Alignment::Proda->new(@params);

	 # Pass	the factory a list of sequences	to be aligned.
	 $inputfilename	= 't/cysprot.fa';
	 # @alns is an array of	SimpleAlign objects.
	 @alns = $factory->align($inputfilename);

	 # or where @seq_array is an array of Bio::Seq objects
	 $seq_array_ref	= \@seq_array;
	 @alns = $factory->align($seq_array_ref);

	 # Or one can pass the factory a pair of (sub)alignments
	 #to be	aligned	against	each other, e.g.:

	 #There	are various additional options and input formats available.
	 #See the DESCRIPTION section that follows for additional details.

	 $factory = Bio::Tools::Run::Alignment::Proda->new();
	 @alns = $factory->align($seq_array_ref);

       This program will return	one or more local alignments for the different
       repeated	or rearranged regions in the sequences.	If a sequences
       contains	more than one of those patterns, it will be present more than
       once in the alignment. The difference will be in	that the id contain
       the start and end, like myseqid(123-456)	and myseqid(567-890), instead
       of simply myseqid as in the original input file.	This is	true for all
       the output ids, even if they are	present	only once.

   Helping the module find your	executable
       You will	need to	enable Proda to	find the proda program.	This can be
       done in (at least) three	ways:

	 1. Make sure the proda	executable is in your path (i.e.
	    'which proda' returns a valid program
	 2. define an environmental variable PRODADIR which points to a
	    directory containing the 'proda' app:
	  In bash
	       export PRODADIR=/home/progs/proda   or
	  In csh/tcsh
	       setenv PRODADIR /home/progs/proda

	 3. include a definition of an environmental variable PRODADIR
	     in	every script that will
	    BEGIN {$ENV{PRODADIR} = '/home/progs/proda'; }
	    use	Bio::Tools::Run::Alignment::Proda;

   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
       the bugs	and their resolution.  Bug reports can be submitted via	the

       The rest	of the documentation details each of the object	methods.
       Internal	methods	are usually preceded with a _

	Returns	: Bio::Tools::Run::Alignment::Proda
	Args	: -outfile_name	=> $outname

	Title	: error_string
	Usage	: $obj->error_string($newval)
	Function: Where	the output from	the last analysus run is stored.
	Returns	: value	of error_string
	Args	: newvalue (optional)

	Title	: version
	Usage	: exit if $prog->version() < 1.8
	Function: Determine the	version	number of the program
	Example	:
	Returns	: float	or undef
	Args	: none

	Title	: run
	Usage	: my $output = $application->run(\@seqs);
	Function: Generic run of an application
	Returns	: Bio::SimpleAlign object
	Args	: Arrayref of Bio::PrimarySeqI objects or
