Sample templates for making a request to CerealsDB web services
This page has sample scripts in perl and python for querying the CerealsDB web services. Your computer may require additional modules to successfully run these scripts, and you may need to specify the correct paths to the perl or python executables.
For perl scripts you will need to ensure that the computer or server that you run this script from has access to the JSON and LWP perl modules, which can be installed via CPAN.
