einfo.pl - query einfo to find all available databases or information about a specific database (field information or links to other NCBI databases)
einfo [-d database] [-f Field Code] [-l Link Name] [-o outfile]
Command line options:
-d/--db/--database NCBI database to query (default = none, which shows available databases) -f/--field print out information about a specific field code (default = none) -l/--link print out information about a specific link name (default = none) -o/--out outfile (default = STDOUT) -h/--help show this documentation
If -d is not specified, field and link arguments are ignored and all available databases are printed instead.
If either link names or field codes (or both) are specified, nothing else is printed out (only the info requested). You can specify as many fields and/or links as you want by using multiple -f/-l <ARG> on the command line.
