The reading structure holds the primary information stored for each sequence. It references several other structures by their numbers into their own structure index. The reading structures also contain references to other reading structures. This is done by use of a doubly linked list ("left" and "right" fields), sorted on ascending position within the contig.

io_read_reading io reading_number
Reads a reading structure from a specified io number and stores it in a keyed list.

io_write_reading io reading_number keyed_list_contents
Writes a reading structure stored in the keyed_list to a specified io number. Returns 0 for success, -1 for failure.

For a description of the readinf structure, see (FIXME) "The GReadings Structure".
