[Bioperl-l] Bio::Tools::Run::Alignment::ClustalW output redirect?

Thanks Chris.  It is in fact when you call align() that clustalw
generates the output that you see on the console.  The alignment is
generates I'm parsing right away.  Here's the output (an example) of
what I'm referring to:

-- BEGIN --
 CLUSTAL W (1.83) Multiple Sequence Alignments

Sequence format is Pearson
Sequence 1: human           271 aa
Sequence 2: mouse           264 aa
Start of Pairwise alignments
Sequences (1:2) Aligned. Score:  90
Guide tree        file created:   [/tmp/TX4yxP9uKQ/80W87TkT5Z.dnd]
Start of Multiple Alignment
There are 1 groups
Group 1: Sequences:   2      Score:5469
Alignment Score 1480
GCG-Alignment file created      [/tmp/TX4yxP9uKQ/xE4GNyY7Rc]
-- END --

How do I get this to do to stderr instead of stdout?

According to the docs ( ;> ) the default behaviour is to return "a
BioPerl Bio::SimpleAlign object which can then be printed and/or saved
in multiple formats using the AlignIO.pm module"; you should be able to
do something

use Bio::AlignIO;
my $aln_factory = Bio::Tools::Run::Alignment::Clustalw->new();
my $aa_aln = $aln_factory->align(\@aa_seq);

my $al_out = Bio::AlignIO::new(-format => 'clustalw',
                               -fh     => \*STDERR);
