"""Module for working with Prosite files from ExPASy (OBSOLETE).

Most of the functionality in this module has moved to Bio.ExPASy.Prosite;
please see

Bio.ExPASy.Prosite.read          To read a Prosite file containing one entry.
Bio.ExPASy.Prosite.parse         Iterates over entries in a Prosite file.
Bio.ExPASy.Prosite.Record        Holds Prosite data.

For
scan_sequence_expasy  Scan a sequence for occurrences of Prosite patterns.
_extract_pattern_hits Extract Prosite patterns from a web page.
PatternHit            Holds data from a hit against a Prosite pattern.
please see the new module Bio.ExPASy.ScanProsite.

The other functions and classes in Bio.Prosite (including
Bio.Prosite.index_file and Bio.Prosite.Dictionary) are considered deprecated,
and were not moved to Bio.ExPASy.Prosite. If you use this functionality,
please contact the Biopython developers at biopython-dev@biopython.org to
avoid permanent removal of this module from Biopython.


This module provides code to work with the prosite dat file from
Prosite.
http://www.expasy.ch/prosite/

Tested with:
Release 15.0, July 1998
Release 16.0, July 1999
Release 17.0, Dec 2001
Release 19.0, Mar 2006


Functions:
parse                 Iterates over entries in a Prosite file.
scan_sequence_expasy  Scan a sequence for occurrences of Prosite patterns.
index_file            Index a Prosite file for a Dictionary.
_extract_record       Extract Prosite data from a web page.
_extract_pattern_hits Extract Prosite patterns from a web page.


Classes:
Record                Holds Prosite data.
PatternHit            Holds data from a hit against a Prosite pattern.
Dictionary            Accesses a Prosite file using a dictionary interface.
RecordParser          Parses a Prosite record into a Record object.
Iterator              Iterates over entries in a Prosite file; DEPRECATED.

_Scanner              Scans Prosite-formatted data.
_RecordConsumer       Consumes Prosite data to a Record object.
