I tried using perl get function giving the url as parameter and downloaded
the data. I am wondering anything available in bioperl? Thanks.

I have another dobut. I am using a similar script to download from ENSEMBLE
database and the script couldn't download. Is it possible to download from
ensemble? How do I solve  this?

For example an url 
http://www.ensembl.org/Danio_rerio/Search/Summary?_q=ENSDART00000015251, if
I use wget from the unix server, it is able to fetch the data where as if i
use the same url under perl like below, I am not able to fetch the data.

#!/usr/bin/perl -w
use LWP::Simple;
my $record = get($url);
print $record;

Please let me know why my perl script is not working with ensemle database.
Thanks. or any pther way to resolve?
