[Bioperl-l] Form validating and Bio::Seq objects..

I'm trying to incorporate some bioperl functionality into webpages. For
example I'm hoping to make a BLAST server that can be accessed by
pasting/typing a sequence into a form on one of my own pages.

I'm wondering, if I read the contents into a Bio::Seq object
(initialising it to use format as fasta) will bioperl edit out all the
white space and nonsensical characters from the sequence before I use it
in a BLAST query, or do I need to validate it with a perl routine first?
