The new version of emblfetch cgi script went live today here at EBI.
It is now possible to retrieve raw text files without HTML tags which
makes entries a lot easier to parse.

I've just committed Bio::DB::EMBL which has four methods for
retrieving entries:


Design issues:

The get_Seq_by_version() is a new method and should probably be added

get_Stream_by_batch() is in Bio::DB::NCBIHelper but I rather not
inherit from it. ;-) Bio::DB::WebDBSeqI again?

BTW, from the servers point of view it is exactly the same which
method you use, it takes in up to 50 identifiers and returns the
corresponding unique entries.

Have fun,
