	Like lookup, stringsearch gives you a file of sequence names (FOSN)
formated output. So you can use fasta as follow :
fasta my_sequence
Search for query in what sequence(s) (* SwissProt:* *) ? @my_subset.strings
the @ says to GCG that this is a FOSN file, and GCG will take all the 
sequences to make the search . You don't need to create a database,
nor to copy all the sequences (no need of disk space).
