in reply to NCBI sequence fetching

Instead of Bioperl you can try NCBI's eutils. In particular the EFetch tool to retrieve fasta sequences given a list of accession identifiers

    Thank you... Tha fact is that with eFetch I don't know how to start :D

    Can you help me on this aspect?

      In the eutils help page you can find a sample Perl program that you can download and execute locally. Try to understand what it does, and then try to modify it to fits your purposes.

      If you have any problem in the process, do not hesitate to post a new question here

      Hope this helps

[ambrus]: I have to tolerate syntax highlighters when other people use them, but I don't use them myself. And sorry for the rant.
[GotToBTru]: I appreciate the ability to highlight matching brackets/ parentheses/ braces, both for my own code and the inconsistently indented code of others
[Corion]: I like editors that automatically highlight the matching parenthesis (like % in vi), but that's roughly the extent to which I like editor support ;)
[GotToBTru]: same here Corion.
[Corion]: I tried for a short time (well, 8 hours now) to get Perl::Tidy set up but then found that it doesn't support (new-style) signatures and then stopped again ;))
[GotToBTru]: changing the font color of the rest of the document just because I typed a single quote character is annoying
