[Bioperl-l] Problems parsing swiss-prot files

Most of the references in most of the files have only one RP 
line.  Occasionally, there are two.  I haven't seen more than two, 
though.  One of the files that had more than one line in at least one 
reference was for P33897.  I'm parsing information on the mutation/ variant 
data and their references, and so need some of the information on those 
second lines.
