Thanks for that offer - but I just wrote my own parser ;-) (in python)
which looks for certain keywords in a psi-blast/blast file, hopefully
it'll survive the next blast version ... . They should add a blast
outputformat that's more machine readable, I mean witch certain fileds
for certain data. Blast output is/was intended to be readable for
humans, but I suppose nobody redas a 10MB psi-blast file ... ;-)
