Have a look at SRS (Sequence Retrieval System) from Thure Etzold at EMBL.
    Etzold,T.; Argos,P. (1993): SRS - an indexing and retrieval tool for
    flat file data libraries. CABIOS 9(1), 49-57.
    Etzold,T.; Argos,P. (1993): Transforming a set of biological flat file
    libraries to a fast access network. CABIOS 9(1), 59-64.

The software itself may be obtained from the EMBL fileserver or via anonymous
FTP from . There is a VMS and a UNIX version.
