\title{(Legacy) "ExperimentPath" class representing a file hierarchy of data


  Short read technologies often produce a hierarchy of output files. The
  content of the hierarchy varies. This class represents the root of the
  file hierarchy. Specific classes (e.g.,
  \code{\linkS4class{SolexaPath}}) represent different technologies.

\section{Objects from the Class}{

  Objects from the class are created by calls to the constructor:

    \item{experimentPath}{\code{character(1)} object pointing to the
      top-level directory of the experiment; see specific technology
      classes for additional detail.}
    \item{verbose=FALSE}{(optional) logical vector which, when
      \code{TRUE} results in warnings if paths do not exist.}
  All paths must be fully-specified.
  \code{ExperimentPath} has one slot, containing a fully
  specified path to the corresponding directory (described above).
    \item{\code{basePath}}{See above.}
  The slot is accessed with \code{experimentPath}.
  Class \code{"\linkS4class{.ShortReadBase}"}, directly.
  Methods include:

    \item{show}{\code{signature(object = "ExperimentPath")}: briefly
      summarize the file paths of \code{object}.}

    \item{detail}{\code{signature(x = "ExperimentPath")}: summarize
      file paths of \code{x}.}
