Overview

Bio::Relation is a simple object storing two nodes and the relation of them. The nodes and the edge (relation) can be any Ruby object. You can also compare Bio::Relation objects if the edges have Comparable property.

Constructor Details

#initialize(node1, node2, edge) ⇒ Relation

Create new binary relation object consists of the two object 'node1' and 'node2' with the 'edge' object as the relation of them.

Instance Method Details

#<=>(rel) ⇒ Object

Used by the each method to compare with another Bio::Relation object. This method is only usable when the edge objects have the property of the module Comparable.

def <=>(rel)
  unless self.edge.kind_of? Comparable
    raise "[Error] edges are not comparable"
  end
  if self.edge > rel.edge
    return 1
  elsif self.edge < rel.edge
    return -1
  elsif self.edge == rel.edge
    return 0
  end
end

#===(rel) ⇒ Object Also known as: eql?

Compare with another Bio::Relation object whether havind same edges and same nodes. The == method compares Bio::Relation object's id, however this case equality === method compares the internal property of the Bio::Relation object.
