Our website -- http://www.lifeformulae.com, has been updated
with the files required to modify the ncbi_c--Mar_17 version of the
NCBI Toolbox
blastall application to support the local BLAST alignment graphical
view and
options that include output of the BlastOutput ASN.1 data structure in
binary or text.

The blastall_diff.txt file is the patch file that contains the
to the Toolbox code. The HOW_TO.txt file provides instructions on how
apply the patch and compile the Toolbox.

blastall will produce the graphical view with either the old or the
BLAST engine. You must use the blastall "-T T" (HTML option) to
activate the
graphical overview.

For the BlastOutput format option, "-m 12" will create an ASN.1 text
file, while "-m 13"
will create an ASN.1 binary file.
