Generally one does this with an editor on whichever system you are working
on (Unix or VMS).
Alternatively, the file is probably already in a known format, such as
Genbank, and you can use the fromgenbank command (see genhelp for the list
of FROM____ commands.) Another alternative is to use Readseq, if that is
installed at your site.
I'd stay away from putting it into Wordperfect - it is kind of a mess
getting it back to your system that way since Wordperfect will tend to
stuff the file full of control sequences. However, if that' what you've
got, save it as a DOS or Windows text file, and then FTP it back to your
system in ASCII mode.
