You have to use pretty to do that. Type the following line (if GCG is
running on a UNIX system):
pretty -cons -dif -thr=1.5 -plu=2
when asked what sequence file you want to use, enter the name of your
dont forget the curly brackets.
Pretty will display the consensus of your sequences (-cons), only the
the consensus will be shown (-dif). The threshold and plurality settings
of 1.5 and 2 are to make
sure that every difference will be shown.
It took me a long time to figure this out the first time I used GCG.
