It was brought to my attention recently that readseq didn't work right
in a Java Servlet container (since it was written before servlets, not
a big surprise). An update fixes this and there is a simple (but not
full featured) JSP page showing its use. Find the update at
readseq.jar - program
readseq.jsp - simple java server page
readseq-2.1.23-src.zip - source code
Some future time I will write a full-featured JSP to offer
all the readseq options and replace its older cgi implementation.

Reads and writes nucleic/protein sequences in various
formats. Data files may have multiple sequences.
classic - the 1993 release, in C code
java - the 1999 release, in Java code
The java version 2, first available in 1999, continues support for the
"classic" C version, in that it includes the same command-line options.
It also has extensions for sequence documentation, feature table and other
additions, plus new sequence format conversions, and a lot of bug
fixing. The java version includes a Graphic User Interface, and a
Web (CGI) interface, as well as the classic Command line interface.
This java version is also more efficient, working faster than
the compiled C classic version.
In other words, you probably want the newer java version.
