I am trying to use Entrez'z Eutilitiy for a text mining module. I tried using the sample snippets from the pubmed website.

use LWP::Simple;

# Download PubMed records that are indexed in MeSH for both asthma and 
# leukotrienes and were also published in 2009.

$db = 'pubmed';
$query = 'asthma[mesh]+AND+leukotrienes[mesh]+AND+2009[pdat]';

#assemble the esearch URL
$base = 'http://eutils.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/entrez/eutils/';
$url = $base . "esearch.fcgi?db=$db&term=$query&usehistory=y";

#post the esearch URL
$output = get($url);

I got get() function Fatal Error. I have the perl LWD module installed But I am still unable to solve this error. Can someone suggest me any error checking pointers?

I dont see a problem with proxy..I let all the proxys access while installing the module and the firewall is also off.

Also If I check in the command line with this command

perl -MLWP::Simple -e 'getprint "http://www.sn.no"'

I get the XML version of the page. It is installed correctly but not working with php

NCBI updates to https. It is important to update calls to use https for example your base would be

$base = 'https://eutils.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/entrez/eutils/';
