    I am evaluating the possibility to use SRS (wgetz) for a database
in a genbank like format.

    As SRS already has (uses?) a parser ("Odd" currently and "Icarus"
in the future) for the output, I would like to use the same parser to
improve the input of data.

    I must say that I can't find my way. Basically I would like to get

from an entry of the database : elements or a list(?tree?) of the
element in such a way that a program can help in correcting the input
by some validation. The ideal would be to be able to propose a
previous entry as a template for the next one.

    Is there somebody who succeeded along such a path, any pointer, 
experience ?

    Since I have not find any reference (archie and www databases) to
"Odd" and "Icarus". How far are these parser more or less deeply
linked to SRS. Is it possible to get ASCII flat file as output ?

    Thank your very much in advance for your help.

By the Way : I would appreciate to conserve the difference between
upper an lower case. For example, it is the way the biologist make the
distinction between a gene and its product !
