       Bio::DB::SoapEUtilities::DocSumAdaptor - Handle for Entrez SOAP DocSums


        my $fac = Bio::DB::SoapEUtilities->new();
        # run a query, returning a DocSumAdaptor
        my $docs = $fac->esummary( -db => 'taxonomy',
                                   -id => 527031 )->run(-auto_adapt=>1);
        # iterate over docsums
        while (my $d = $docs->next_docsum) {
           @available_items = $docsum->item_names;
           # any available item can be called as an accessor
           # from the docsum your case...
           $sci_name = $d->ScientificName;
           $taxid = $d->TaxId;


       This adaptor provides an iterator ("next_docsum()") and other convenience functions for
       parsing NCBI Entrez EUtility "esummary" SOAP results.
