But you cannot put more than one sequence into a GCG sequence file :-(

The closest you can get is to make a "file of sequence names" or "list
file" that lists all the individual sequence files, then use the
"@filename" syntax.

GCG 9.0 has a FASTATOGCG program that converts FASTA format files
(which can have more than one sequence just for this program) into
GCG libraries.

EGCG 9.0 was going to have a similar program (with the same name).  I
am still looking at the differences. It now will be called EFASTATOGCG.
