biological sequence file format conversion applet for GNUstep

Demo application to demonstrate the possibilities of the BioCocoa framework. This package contains a GNUstep applet to convert between sequence file formats. The BioCocoa framework provides developers with the opportunity to add support for reading and writing BEAST, Clustal, EMBL, Fasta, GCG-MSF, GDE, Hennig86, NCBI, NEXUS, NONA, PDB, Phylip, PIR, Plain/Raw, Swiss-Prot and TNT files by writing only three lines of code. The framework is written in Cocoa (Objective-C). Version 1.6 is the last upstream version that works with GNUstep. If newer versions are needed to work under Linux try to convince upstream to support GNUstep.

More information about apt-get install

Advanced Package Tool, or APT, is a free software user interface that works with core libraries to handle the installation and removal of software on Debian, Ubuntu and other Linux distributions. APT simplifies the process of managing software on Unix-like computer systems by automating the retrieval, configuration and installation of software packages, either from precompiled files or by compiling source code.

apt-get is the command-line tool for handling packages, and may be considered the user's "back-end" to other tools using the APT library.

apt-get install is followed by one or more packages desired for installation or upgrading. Each package is a package name, not a fully qualified filename. All packages required by the package(s) specified for installation will also be retrieved and installed. The /etc/apt/sources.list file is used to locate the desired packages. If a hyphen is appended to the package name (with no intervening space), the identified package will be removed if it is installed. Similarly a plus sign can be used to designate a package to install. These latter features may be used to override decisions made by apt-get's conflict resolution system.
