GOPHER searches for strings in a full-text way. GOPHER does NOT search 
sequence data (yet). If you happen to be on my server, 

                    Internet Gopher Information Client v0.7

                              EMBL CD-ROM release

   -->    1.  Simultaneous search in all XXEMBL XEMBL EMBL sections  <?>
          2.  search for a key word in FUN section                   <?>
          3.  search for a key word in INV section                   <?>
          4.  search for a key word in MAM section                   <?>
...
          10. search for a key word in ROD section                   <?>
          11. search for a key word in SYN section                   <?>
          12. search for a key word in UNA section                   <?>

then you get asked at the bottom of the screen as 
Index word(s) to search for: 
If you type a name there, e.g., xu, the screen will look like 



           Simultaneous search in all XXEMBL XEMBL EMBL sections : xu

   -->    1.  X59720; S.cerevisiae chromosome III complete DNA sequence.
          2.  M87549; Saccharomyces cerevisiae yeast homolog of recA (Dmc1) g.
          3.  M37743; S.cerevisiae histone HTB1 mRNA, 3' end..
          4.  M74293; Schizosaccharomyces pombe byr2 gene, complete cds..
          5.  M80547; Ustilago maydis URBS1 protein (urbS1) gene, complete cd.
          6.  M16153; D.melanogaster Notch locus gene, exon 1..
          7.  M16149; D.melanogaster Notch locus gene, exon 2..
...


Selecting entry 3 gives you

--More--(47%)

and the 'MORE' at the bottom of the screen tells you to proceed with 
<SPACE>. If you type 'q', or  did review all data, the bottom line changes to 
Press <RETURN> to continue, <s> to save, or <p> to print:
There, typing 's' gives you 
Enter save file name: 
You enter a save file name there, and the data get saved on local disk.
If this isn't good for you, you need to find a gopher client 1.0 or later
which permits also to send the data per MAIL to you.

Reinhard
