[Bioperl-l] Bioperl objects and subroutines

Hi all,

Sorry if this seems more like a general perl question, but I can't find
the answer I need in my books.

How do I pass an object (specifically a Bio::Seq object) to a perl
subroutine? I thought object variables were references anyway, but
passing those variables didn't work. At the moment I pass a reference

$reference = \$seqobject;

And within the subroutine attempt to access like:

$sequence = bless @_[0];

But this doesn't work either, and I can't access the object methods.

Obviously I'm no perl veteran, and don't really know how to do it.
Thanks in advance for any help.
