I answered this a number of months back:


Basically, newer versions of EMBOSS have changed the output for the  
AlignIO::emboss parser (which parses needle).  I don't believe the  
parser has been fixed to deal with that, but Jason has pointed out  
you can use MSF output when running needle, then parse using AlignIO  
with the format set to 'msf'.
