There is however a problem : Readseq (or at least the distribution of
1 Feb 93, maybe it has been fixed now) omits to replace "." by "-".

That is why for a long time we teached our users to edit the Readseq
output file with the vi "supervisor" command :

:1,$s/\./-/g

Horrible ! Fortunately, there is tophylip now.
