[Biojava-l] Using the Meme class

I'm trying to use the Meme class in org.biojava.bio.program. Currently I
write an application that will perform Meme analysis (to find conserved
motifs in DNA). I had written the application such that it will read a
fasta format file containing multiple fasta sequences. It runs fine but
the "public List getSeqIDs()" and "public List getMotifs()" is producing
empty lists.

While the API of the Meme class does not contain much information (sorry
about the complain), so I'm not sure about how to use the "InputStream is"
parameter of the Meme constructor. Currently I use

InputStream is = new BufferedInputStream(new

Is it the correct InputStream object?

An example code of perform Meme analysis will also be appreciated
(currently it is not in the tutorial or the cookbook).
