Hi all,

Many thanks for that Peter. It worked a charm. 

There does seem to be a bug in there somewhere. If more than one item is 
selected for retrieval at a time, only a single item is returned. The other 
items all return a 'This file cannot be found' error. 

Finally as an aside, could this system be adapted to retrieve the PTT files 
from Genbank?

All the very best,

See this thread:

The summary is that the current code needs some updating to work
with the current NCBI FTP site (see my branch for some fixes), and
Dan will hopefully be looking at updating things - possibly to take
advantage of the Galaxy Library functionality (so that using the data
doesn't needless make a copy of it).
