Bio::DB::SoapEUtilities::GQueryAdaptor(3) Handle for Entrez SOAP GlobalQuery items


my $fac = Bio::DB::SoapEUtilities->new();
# run a query, returning a GQueryAdaptor
my $queries = $fac->egquery( -term => 'BRCA and human' )->run(-auto_adapt=>1);
# all databases with hits
my @dbs = $queries->found_in_dbs;
# queries by database
my $prot_count = $queries->query_by_db('prot')->count;
# iterate over gquery
while ( my $q = $queries->next_query ) {
my $db = $q->db;
my $count = $q->count;
my $status = $q->status;


This adaptor provides an iterator ("next_query()") and other convenience functions for parsing NCBI Entrez EUtility "egquery" SOAP results.
