No single program exists to do this (that I know of), but running 
the proper sequence of GCG programs will create the desired dataset. 
Instructions are available with the EPD files at NCBI:

	ftp  ncbi.nlm.nih.gov

	cd  repository/EPD/epd

	get  gcg.txt

There are instructions for both VMS and Unix. It worked for me the 
one time I tried it, a year or two ago.
