The pirtogcg failed for me too converting the nrl3d to GCG9 format, so
I get time to figure out what was wrong, I use a fasta version of the
data and then use GCG9's fastatogcg program to index it.

Okay, it has lost much of the sequence annotation, but then users could
always look for keywords in SRS5 anyway using nrl3d/pdbfinder/pdb or

p.s. I have attached a no warranty pir2fasta perl5 conversion script.
