       Bio::DB::SoapEUtilities::LinkAdaptor - Handle for Entrez SOAP LinkSets


        my $fac = Bio::DB::SoapEUtilities->new();
        # run a query, returning a LinkAdaptor
        $fac->elink( -db => 'nucleotide',
                     -dbfrom => 'protein',
                     -id => [qw(828392 790 470338)]);
        my $links = $fac->elink->run( -auto_adapt => 1);
        # get the linked ids corresponding to the submitted ids
        # (may be arrays if multiple crossrefs, or undef if none)
        my @nucids = $links->id_map(828392);
        # iterate over linksets
        while ( my $ls = $links->next_linkset ) {
           my @from_ids = $ls->submitted_ids;
           my @to_ids = $ls->ids;
           my $from_db = $ls->db_from;
           my $to_db = $ls->db_to;


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