Hi GCGers:
     Does anyone else out there obtain the NRL_3D database (part of PIR)
from the NCBI server?  We did this last year (with GCG 8.1) and used
DBINDEX to make .names .numbers and .offset files.  An attempt to update
using a current version of NRL_3D and GCG 9.0 resulted in DBINDEX giving a
message like "no accession number in entry".  The NRL_3D .ref files appear
to have headers which are different from PIR1, PIR2, etc.  
     BTW, the idea of including the NRL_3D database as part of PIR was to
alert users of FASTA etc. to homologous proteins for which structural data
exist.  NRL_3D was not distributed by GCG nor included in pir.farm
