What sort of parsing?
There was UNIX x windows application called BOB (Blast Output Browser) that
displayed Blast output in a multi-pane window to allow easy looking at the
alignments by clicking on the ranked list.
Currently there is a text version of BOB available, and Andy Law (BBSRC,UK)
has written a very nice Mac version:

The laest version of my Macintosh Blast (and FASTA) output browser (MacBOB)
is available for download from
Changes since the last version are:-
New file format now handled. BLAST2 as supplied by Michael Mitchell of
You can now copy from the hit list in the top pane of a MacBOB window
(requested by David Morrice)
MacBOB now remembers the scroll bar settings for each alignment in
each window. No-one specifically asked for that, but I figured it was
a neater way of functioning.
