If you have the mailfasta script you can do FASTA seaches in JAPAN and BLAST
searches from NCBI. There are quite a few scripts floating about for unix and
vms that take the ache out of submitting mail for searches. The one I have
running on our system is mailfasta from Thon De Boer. It is essential. Anyone
with a unixbox should have it. It does so much.

I have sent you the file. I retrieved it via gopher from Dan Davison's 
gopher hole. If you do not have gopher on your system then use a public
access gopher. You will not regret it. Gopher is opening up the network
in ways that you would not have dreamed possible one year ago. You need it.
