edirutil - synthesize NCBI ENTREZ_DIRECT XML (edirect pipeline state)


edirutil [-db name] [-web webenv] [-key N] [-count N] [-step N] [-silent] [-verbose] [-debug]


edirutil synthesizes ENTREZ_DIRECT XML records, which several edirect commands read, write, or both, to allow for server-side transformation or filtering of results prior to presenting them. edirutil makes it possible to bypass one or more edirect pipeline stages on the basis of state observed in browsers or other tools that don't natively produce ENTREZ_DIRECT XML.
