The program BOXSHADE has an ASCII output option that will do what you 
want. You have to specify one of the input sequences as the 'master' 
sequence, and the others are compared to that. Matching sequences can be 
shown/printed in a different case/replaced with dots, as required.
The program is available from the EMBL software archive.
