# Removed 'write' options from retrieve_pdb_file method: it is not used.
# Also added a 'dir' options (pdb file is put in this directory if given),
# and an 'exist' option (test if the file is already there). This method
# now returns the name of the downloaded uncompressed file.

00041 class PDBList:
    This class provides quick access to the structure lists on the
    PDB server or its mirrors. The structure lists contain
    four-letter PDB codes, indicating that structures are
    new, have been modified or are obsolete. The lists are released
    on a weekly basis.

    It also provides a function to retrieve PDB files from the server.
    To use it properly, prepare a directory /pdb or the like,
    where PDB files are stored.

    If You want to use this module from inside a proxy, add
    the proxy variable to Your environment, e.g. in Unix
    export HTTP_PROXY='http://realproxy.charite.de:888'    
    (This can also be added to ~/.bashrc)
