Based on feed back from Guenter and few other ... I have modified the
query field to be 255 characters long which is the maimum allowable under
Mysql [ after which I will have to make it a blob].
I plan to change the code to correctly use the new Pubmed system in
the next 2 weeks.
Thanks for your feed back.
