I would suggest that instead you use Thon De Boer's excellect script
called mailfasta. It will not only give Blast from NCBI and Fasta from
EMBL but there are interfaces to BLOCKS, GRAIL, PHD, and a host of
other goodies. Here are some ftp sites where you can nab the file from.

Host nic.funet.fi

      File mailfasta3.0.readme 1K (1321 bytes) 05-09-92 

You will also have to get Don Gilbert's Readseq for mailfasta to work
