Try phred for base calling ..its also will spit out quality values

..if you really want the "raw" signal values you can check my site
..this on line utility will output the bases and signal values as a
comma seperated files from a ABI trace file. [ I wrote this so that our
group could create nice traces in vector format for publication
..instead of bitmap screen dumps ].


I will be happy to give you the source code.
