       gene2xml - convert NCBI Entrez Gene ASN.1 into XML


       gene2xml  [-]  [-b]  [-c] [-i filename] [-l] [-o filename] [-p path] [-r path] [-t N] [-x]
       [-y] [-z]


       gene2xml is a stand-alone program that converts Entrez Gene ASN.1 into XML.   Entrez  Gene
       data  are stored as compressed binary Entrezgene-Set ASN.1 files on the NCBI ftp site, and
       have the suffix .ags.gz.  These  are  several-fold  smaller  than  compressed  XML  files,
       resulting  in  a  significant  savings  of  disk  storage  and  network bandwidth.  Normal
       processing by gene2xml produces text XML files with the same name but  with  .xgs  as  the

       -b     File is Binary

       -c     File is Compressed

       -i filename
              Single Input file (standard input by default) when not using -p

       -l     Log processing (list files processed when using -p)

       -o filename
              Single Output file (standard output by default) when not using -p

       -p path
              Path to Files (if processing an entire directory)

       -r path
              Path for Results when using -p; defaults to the input directory

       -x     Extract .ags to text .agc (format previously distributed)

       -y     Combine .agc to text .ags (for testing)

       -z     Combine .agc to binary .ags, then gzip
