[Bioperl-l] Downloading genbank (full) format

Hi Cacau,

It seems "gb" is just an alias for "genbank", but as you've
noticed some records are more like manifests for how to
build up the full record from its parts using a CONTIG

There is also "gbwithparts" which in the NCBI web interface
is "Genbank (full)", but there can be subtle errors with the
processing done at the NCBI end.


Another possible but not yet confirmed issue:
