	I hope Fred will be able to. Just wait (if you can't, just hack
DBWatcher C code from the current distribution :
	ftp://ftp-igbmc.u-strasbg.fr/pub ). In fact, I can't remember, if
it works for all the Blast versions or only for the new ones. 
Can't check now. It would take less time waiting for Fred.

	If you check the format of what you are currently reading? I
think you can use, from both names, the one that share the format
you expect, no? Just an idea...
