You may not even need to mention anything about URI encoding, which
might frighten some people. Something as simple as:
my $esearch = Bio::DB::EUtilities->new(-eutil => 'esearch',
-db => 'pubmed',
-term => 'hutP AND xyz',
and/or some POD for the new() method:
Title : new
Args : -eutil => ...
-db => ...
-term => string, an entrez-style query
would get the point across, I think.
BTW, can the term string be supplied anywhere else other than new()? It
doesn't matter at all if it can't, I'm just idly wondering if I missed
