[Bioperl-l] module for pubchem queries

Hello all,

I have a list of chemical compounds that have some kind of interaction
with proteins or genes.  The current list contains names or SMILES and
I would like to get the CID number for those compounds.  Currently,
I'm using perl to query the NCBI's eutils[1], which works great.  But
I was just curious to know of there was a bioperl module to do
something similar.  A quick google didn't turn up anything, so I
thought I'd ask.
