[Bioperl-l] How to read in FASTA formatted sequence without fasta header?

I'm looking for the easier way to read in a fasta file that doesn't
contain the fasta header, ie the ">..." line.

I tried just specifying fasta, but then the first line of the sequence
is taken as the name of the sequence.  I also tried specifying raw, but
then only the first line is read.  

Is there any (easy) way to do this without reformatting the fasta file
or creating a new one?  Thanks,
