Greetings all,

I don't know how much people want something like this, but...

I've written a Genbank to .ace conversion script in perl.  It handles
the latest version of Genbank flat format files and outputs into ACEDB
version 4 type ?Sequence and ?Paper models.  (The models we use have been
slightly changed from the distribution - a copy is enclosed.)  Most of the
Genbank features are handled, and the user can set an option to generically
handle the features for which I did not write specific code.  The feature
handling routines are in a separate file, so it's easy to extend them.

The tar file is available at:

Enjoy.  Also, please send me your comments (or requests, even).

P.S. If anyone knows of some perl libraries to handle asn.1 data, please
	let me know.
