MOBY Client

Current BioMoby release for Perl ( distributes Client and Server codes together, with several required external CPAN/non-CPAN modules.

Majority of the users would just want the client code, so we have put together a Client-only package, using Module::Install so that it automatically installs required CPAN modules upon make.

Edward has already uploaded the module to CPAN ( so users can easily install MOBY-Client by the following command:

sudo perl -MCPAN -e 'install MOBY::Client::Central'

Testing MOBY services

Out of 39 services that can be used with NCBI gi:

* 5 returned 404 NOT FOUND
* 10 returned mobyException (mostly java.lang.exception, or Perl errors)
* 5 returned absolutely nothing
* only 16 returned some sort of response.
