Bio::PrimerDesigner::Remote - A class for remote access to Bio::PrimerDesigner


  use Bio::PrimerDesigner::Remote;


Interface to the server-side binaries. Passes the primer design paramaters to a remote CGI, which uses a server-side installation of Bio::PrimerDesigner to process the request.



Passes arguments to the URL of the remote Bio::PrimerDesigner CGI and returns the raw output for further processing by local design classes.


Tests the URL to make sure the host is live and the CGI returns the expected results.
