Hi All

I looking to batch download some 34K nucleotide sequences,
corresponding to a NCBI accession number. I tired the following and
getting an error. Has it got anything to do with recent update to code
that Chris was discussing.

my $factory = Bio::DB::EUtilities->new  (
					-eutil	=> 'efecth',
					-db 	=>	'nucleotide',
					-retype	=>	'fasta',
					-id		=> $id

----------- EXCEPTION: Bio::Root::Exception -------------
MSG: efecth not supported
STACK: Error::throw
STACK: Bio::Root::Root::throw
STACK: Bio::Tools::EUtilities::EUtilParameters::eutil
STACK: Bio::Root::RootI::_set_from_args
STACK: Bio::Tools::EUtilities::EUtilParameters::new
STACK: Bio::DB::EUtilities::new
STACK: ./getDatafromNCBI.pl:9
