*EPD format

Stephen Klautky notes that epd29.seq won't work with the GCG package.  This
isn't surprising as those sequences are in FASTA format not GCG format.  In
order to use these sequences under GCG one must first convert all of them to
GCG format.  Is there a way to do this ?  YES!  Don Gibert's program
READSEQ converts among a variety of types of sequence formats (kudoes to Don),
including fasta and gcg.  I have included a listing of sites where you can get
readseq.  Once you have imported readseq, and installed it you can convert the
EPD database with the following command:

readseq -a -f5 epd29.seq | cat > epd29.gcg

Filtering it through cat is important as otherwise it will output each sequence
 into a seperate file.  This assumes that you are using unix.

OR I could make this (or other sequence formats) file available for ftp if
the authors of epd don't mind.  Let me know what you'd like.

Hope this helps,
