extract & translate exons

Hi folks-

I am working on a project that has a need to look at the coding
information on an exon by exon basis. We would like to be able to
extract exon sequences from Genbank (GCG format) and then translate
them in the appropriate reading frame. There are some complications in
defining the correct start point (in exon 1) and in defining the
correct reading frame in other exons.

Has anyone done this? Does anyone have any suggestions on how we might
go about getting a database of translated exon sequences? (this would
actually be peptide fragments). Any help would be appreciated. Thanks
in advance
