I would be very disappointed to lose one part of bptutorial.pl--this was 
described in Tisdall's _Mastering Perl for Bioinformatics_. It is the 
only purpose I've ever used bptutorial.pl for--to find all the methods 
available to any given object. Eg:

bptutorial.pl 100 Bio::PrimarySeq

 ***Methods for Object Bio::PrimarySeq ********

 Methods taken from package Bio::IdentifiableI
 lsid_string   namespace_string

 Methods taken from package Bio::PrimarySeq
 accession   accession_number   alphabet   authority   can_call_new   desc

 subseq   validate_seq   version

 Methods taken from package Bio::PrimarySeqI
