netgrail.plx has been updated.

netgrail.plx 0.03 Alpha

netgrail.plx is a simple client used to create valid requests to the
GRAIL server.  This utility does not support some of the more 
complex queries that Grail allows, most notably, netgrail.plx does not
allow for parameters to be sent to options. It is great, however, for
basic queries from the command line and automating sequence annotation.
netgrail.plx was tested on a variety of unix flavors as well as windows.


netgrail.plx is available from


1. netgrail.plx no longer requires Net::Telnet.  Instead, it uses the
   IO::Socket modules which come with Perl.
2. the default feature was changed from grail1exons to grail2exons.
3. Added a zip distribution for Windows.
