       extractseq -sequence sequence -regions range [-separate boolean] -outseq seqoutall

       extractseq -help


       extractseq is a command line program from EMBOSS (“the European Molecular Biology Open
       Software Suite”). It is part of the "Edit" command group(s).


   Input section
       -sequence sequence

   Required section
       -regions range
           Regions to extract. A set of regions is specified by a set of pairs of positions. The
           positions are integers. They are separated by any non-digit, non-alpha character.
           Examples of region specifications are: 24-45, 56-78 1:45, 67=99;765..888
           1,5,8,10,23,45,57,99 Default value: $(sequence.begin)-$(sequence.end)

   Additional section
       -separate boolean
           If this is set true then each specified region is written out as a separate sequence.
           The name of the sequence is created from the name of the original sequence with the
           start and end positions of the range appended with underscore characters between them,
           eg: XYZ region 2 to 34 is written as: XYZ_2_34 Default value: N

   Output section
       -outseq seqoutall
