       asn2ff - convert ASN.1 biological data to a flat format (old version)


       asn2ff  [-]  [-A X]  [-B X] [-C] [-G] [-L F] [-M] [-R] [-V F] [-a filename] [-b] [-d] [-e]
       [-f b/p/e/s/x/z]   [-g]   [-h F]   [-k F]   [-l filename]   [-m r/d/s/c/k/l/e/p]    [-n F]
       [-o filename] [-p F] [-q] [-r filename] [-s] [-t] [-v F] [-w] [-y] [-z]


       asn2ff  converts  descriptions  of biological sequences from NCBI's ASN.1 format to one of
       several flat-file formats.  This program is built around a  deprecated  interface;  please
       use asn2gb(1) instead.


       A summary of options is included below.

       -      Print usage message

       -A X   Show region starting at X (default is 0)

       -B X   Show region ending at X (default is last position)

       -C     Show Bankit comments

       -G     Output is one top bioseq only in genome view

       -L F   Use old (pre-Genbank 127.0) LOCUS line format

       -M     Output is map bioseqs only

       -R     For GenBank Release

       -V F   Don't use VERSION

       -a filename
              Filename for ASN.1 input (default is stdin)

       -b     Input asnfile in binary mode

       -d     Use SeqMgr indexing

       -e     Input is a Seq-entry

       -f b/p/e/s/x/z
              Output Format:
              b      GenBank (default)

              s      PseudoEMBL
              x      GenBankSelect
              z      EMBLPEPT

       -g     Show gi numbers

       -h F   Hide sequence

       -k F   Don't use complex sets (phy-set,mut-set, pop-set)

       -l filename
              Log errors to filename

       -m r/d/s/c/k/l/e/p
              Output mode:
              r      release (default)
              d      dump
              s      Sequin
              c      Chromoscope
              k      dir-sub-debug
              l      dir-sub
              e      revise
              p      partial report

       -n F   Strict gene_binding

       -o filename
              Output Filename (default is stdout)

       -p F   Omit new gene features

       -q     Output is one top bioseq only

       -r filename
              Output error logfile (default is stderr)

       -s     Input is a Seq-submit

       -t     Show verbose message text
