Dear Siddhartha,

glad to hear this might be helpful. As for the bioperl-network package 
you mention, thank for you for mentioning that. I gave a quick look to 
its documentation and looks like a much deeper and more complex effort 
than what I have in my package. I've actually been using a lot the 
package Graph on which it seems to be based and found it very helpful.

I'm not sure if the network routines in my module overlap with it 
though: all I do in my package is parse the dataset, filtering out only 
what requested to build a cytoscape SIF file and optionally some 
cytoscape NOA attribute files, as requested by the cytoscape 
specification in


instead it looks like  bioperl-network actually builds some kind of 
internal representation of the network for further manipulation in Perl, 
if I understand it correctly?

Kind regards
