You should check out the Deobfuscator at:
http://bioperl.org/cgi-bin/deob_interface.cgi

Search and choose the object of choice. e.g. Bio::Tools::Run::RemoteBlast

You will be provided a list of methods available to that object,
including all the methods up the inheritance hierarchy. Unfortunately,
some bioperl modules are documented more thoroughly than others.
