It was brought to my attention recently that readseq didn't work right
in a Java Servlet container (since it was written before servlets, not
a big surprise). An update fixes this and there is a simple (but not
full featured) JSP page showing its use. Find the update at 
  readseq.jar - program
  readseq.jsp - simple java server page
  readseq-2.1.23-src.zip - source code
Some future time I will write a full-featured JSP to offer
all the readseq options and replace its older cgi implementation.

 Reads and writes nucleic/protein sequences in various
 formats. Data files may have multiple sequences.

 classic - the 1993 release, in C code
 java - the 1999 release, in Java code

 The java version 2, first available in 1999, continues support for the 
 "classic" C version, in that it includes the same command-line options. 
 It also has extensions for sequence documentation, feature table and other 
 additions, plus new sequence format conversions, and a lot of bug
 fixing. The java version includes a Graphic User Interface, and a
 Web (CGI) interface, as well as the classic Command line interface.
 This java version is also more efficient, working faster than 
 the compiled C classic version. 

 In other words, you probably want the newer java version.
