Bio::Tools::Run::RepeaUserkContributed Perl DoBio::Tools::Run::RepeatMasker(3)

       Bio::Tools::Run::RepeatMasker - Wrapper for RepeatMasker	Program

	 use Bio::Tools::Run::RepeatMasker;

	 my @params=("mam" => 1,"noint"=>1);
	 my $factory = Bio::Tools::Run::RepeatMasker->new(@params);
	 $in  =	Bio::SeqIO->new(-file => "contig1.fa",
				-format	=> 'fasta');
	 my $seq = $in->next_seq();

	 #return an array of Bio::SeqFeature::FeaturePair objects
	 my @feats = $factory->run($seq);

	 # or

	 my @feats = $factory->repeat_features;

	 #return the masked sequence, a	Bio::SeqI object
	 my $masked_seq	= $factory->run;

       To use this module, the RepeatMasker program (and probably database)
       must be installed. RepeatMasker is a program that screens DNA sequences
       for interspersed	repeats	known to exist in mammalian genomes as well as
       for low complexity DNA sequences. For more information, on the program
       and its usage, please refer to

       Having installed	RepeatMasker, you must let Bioperl know	where it is.
       This can	be done	in (at least) three ways:

	1. Make	sure the RepeatMasker executable is in your path.
	2. Define an environmental variable REPEATMASKERDIR which is a
	   directory which contains the	RepeatMasker executable:
	   In bash:

	   export REPEATMASKERDIR=/home/username/RepeatMasker/

	   In csh/tcsh:

	   setenv REPEATMASKERDIR /home/username/RepeatMasker/

	3. Include a definition	of an environmental variable REPEATMASKERDIR in
	   every script	that will use this RepeatMasker	wrapper	module,	e.g.:

	   BEGIN { $ENV{REPEATMASKERDIR} = '/home/username/RepeatMasker/' }
	   use Bio::Tools::Run::RepeatMasker;

   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
