Annotations, also known as tags, are general comments attached to segments of sequences (either real readings or the consensus). They form a singly linked list by use of the "next" field. The annotations must be sorted in ascending order.

io_read_annotation io annotation_number
Reads an annotation structure from a specified io number and stores it in a keyed list.

io_write_annotation io annotation_number
keyed_list_contents Writes an annotation structure stored in the keyed_list to a specified io number. Returns 0 for success, -1 for failure.

For a description of the database structure, see (FIXME) "The GAnnotations Structure".
