[Biopython-dev] Wrong comment, perhaps?

I'm sorry to bother everyone over such a minor technicality, but in the
docs and comments in Bio.Blast.Record.Blast, in the class
DatabaseReport, it says that the attribute num_sequences_in_database is
the number of sequences in the database, which is an int.


Python 2.3.2 (#2, Oct  6 2003, 08:02:06) 
[GCC 3.3.2 20030908 (Debian prerelease)] on linux2
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
>>> from Bio.Blast.NCBIStandalone import BlastParser
>>> rec = BlastParser().parse(open("blastOutput01.txt"))
>>> rec.num_sequences_in_database

Just wondering if the docs are wrong and it's really supposed to be a
list (since the database names is also a list) or if the code is wrong
and it's supposed to just be a number.

(this is not the CVS version, but the tarballed release 1.23 for linux)
