  Readseq version 2.0j (august 1999)

  A program to read & reformat biosequences, and a package
  of methods for programmmers to incorporate into their software
  for this end.  This is version is written in the Java language.
  This release is available for testing.  Some debugging is still
  needed.  Your comments are welcome.  Find it at
  http://iubio.bio.indiana.edu/soft/molbio/readseq/java/, or
Programs available in the readseq.jar package 
For the current help document, use a Java Runtime command of
  jre -cp readseq.jar help 

Graphic interface to Readseq (using Java swing)
  Usage: jre -cp readseq.jar iubio.readseq.app
  Macintosh users: See also Readseq.macapp, a small Mac Java application
  to launch readseq.jar without a jre commandline.

HTTP server common gateway interface to Readseq
  Web servers can run this program to provide biosequence conversion
  See for example http://iubio.bio.indiana.edu/cgi-bin/readseq.cgi
  See the help document for usage information

Command line version (classic-readseq options are supported)
  Usage: jre -cp readseq.jar run [options] input-file(s)

    -a[ll]              select All sequences
    -c[aselower]        change to lower case
    -C[ASEUPPER]        change to UPPER CASE
    -degap[=-]          remove gap symbols
    -i[tem=2,3,4]       select Item number(s) from several
    -l[ist]             List sequences only
    -o[utput=]out.seq   redirect Output
    -p[ipe]             Pipe (command line, <stdin, >stdout)
    -t[ranslate=]io     translate input symbol [i] to output symbol [o]
                        use several -tio to translate several symbols
    -v[erbose]          Verbose progress
    -f[ormat=]#         Format number for output,  or
    -f[ormat=]Name      Format name for output
          see Formats   list below for names and numbers
    -inform[at]=#       input format number,  or
    -inform[at]=Name    input format name.  Assume input data is this format
    -ch[ecksum]         calculate & print checksum of sequences

   Pretty format options:
    -wid[th]=#            sequence line width
    -tab=#                left indent
    -col[space]=#         column space within sequence line on output
    -gap[count]           count gap chars in sequence numbers
    -nameleft, -nameright[=#]   name on left/right side [=max width]
    -nametop              name at top/bottom
    -numleft, -numright   seq index on left/right side
    -numtop, -numbot      index on top/bottom
    -match[=.]            use match base for 2..n species
    -inter[line=#]        blank line(s) between sequence blocks

This program requires a Java runtime (jre) program, version 1.1.x 
These options and call format are compatible with the classic readseq (v.1992)
with exception of no -reverse option.
