Description : fast perl module for parsing the output of NCBI BLAST programs
The Zerg library contains a C/flex lexical scanner for BLAST reports
and a set of supporting functions. It is centered on a "get_token"
function that scans the input for specified lexical elements and, when
one is found, returns its code and value to the user.
It is intended to be fast: for that we used flex, which provides
simple regular expression matching and input buffering in the
generated C scanner. And it is intended to be simple in the sense of
providing just a lexical scanner, with no features whose support could
slow down its main function.
