Dear Mike

I havent use efetch before. Anyway I will look in to that.

Separately RCSB is providing WebServices and its clients in Java and Perl, I
think here you will get a programmatic access to the database. But due to
some strange security reasons my sysadmin people are not allowing me to
access the webservices.

http://www.rcsb.org/robohelp/webservices/summary.htm -> Exact URL
I hope this will help.
