Olson's sequence editor: file format for protein multisequence files

It has always been a trial to get sequence data from other sources
into the Olsen editor, which was designed mainly for entering
data from keyboard.   At one point, it would only accept raw sequence
(as you found readseq making) in single files/sequence using a special
command (I don't recall what).  The version you have may also read in
multi-sequence files that are in Genbank format, but I don't recall
what the commands for that might be.  The default input format it is
looking for is it's own special binary format, which readseq is not
able to reproduce.
