Bioperl-Tk does a good job if you want to have it outside any webpage and
inside a Perl-Tk widget. The package to consider is Bio::Tk::HitDisplay.

I wrote a blastviewer in Tcl/Tk that does almost the same (and shows a bit
more than Bio::Tk::HitDisplay), but that one comes with its own self written
BLAST parser which is not so effective as the one in BioPerl and may be a bit
buggy... but nevertheless it works and the parser is extensible ;-).
