[Bioperl-l] BLAST and parsing question

Have you already looked into MUMmer ? I believe you even don't need a
sliding window approach. Given the complete query sequence, the
application will just show the stretches of exact matches.
It is based on suffix trees. Disadvantage however, is that currently
there is no possibility to store the indexes to the suffix trees, e.g.
you can not 'formatdb' your sequences into a 'MUMmer database'. The
suffix tree datastructures for the 'database' are generated in every run
and stored into memory.
Check it out at http://mummer.sourceforge.net/.
