[Bioperl-l] general question about possible attribute values

I'm relatively new to both objects and bioperl, and I'm having trouble
finding documentation on what values an attribute can have.  For example, in
Bio::Assembly::Contig the example script invokes the 'new' method with an
example filename and assigns the -format attribute (I think that's the
correct terminology) a value of 'phrap' ...

now, I'm wanting to process contig output from the cap3 program, so I'll try
assigning 'cap3' to the -format attribute (haven't tried yet so I don't know
if it will work), but where do I look for a complete list of what possible
values I can use?  I can't find it via either the Pdoc or CPAN documentation
links from the bioperl wiki pages.  Any help would be appreciated ...
