BLAST 2 info needed

I am working on a BLAST client program.  I am able to run BLAST 1
searches over the web at NCBI by sending requests to the URL recommended
in the documentation at ftp://ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/blast/blasturl/

I would also like to be able to do gapped BLAST searches, but have not
been able to find equivalent documentation.  Does anyone know of
documentation for writing a basic BLAST 2 web client or if NCBI provides
a stable URL for doing BLAST 2 searches similar to the one suggested for
BLAST 1 searches (ie. other than the main forms which, as I understand
it, could change location or format at any time)?

Thanks for your time,
