Hi Ross-
Yes, you can specify the recombinants, as "A/C/G[subtype]" in the query string. Unfortunately, the 10000 record limit is imposed by the Los Alamos site that my program accesses. You might be able to work around this if you're willing to write your own script using the BioPerl modules that are the basis for the hivq.PLS -- by using the modules to perform multiple queries, and collecting the the entire set of sequences over that series of queries. 
You might look at the documentation for the modules for ideas; try looking at http://www.bioperl.org/wiki/Module:Bio::DB::HIV and http://www.bioperl.org/wiki/Module:Bio::DB::Query::HIVQuery . 
best regards-

  Dear Mark A. Jensen,


  A google search returns your program (http://code.open-bio.org/svnweb/index.cgi/bioperl/view/bioperl-live/trunk/scripts/DB-HIV/hivq.PLS)


  I wonder whether the program is able to search recombinants (e.g. B incl. recombinants) and retrieve results more than 50000 records. This limitation is a bottleneck by the web-based search.


  Thanks for your advice, Ross
