[Bioperl-l] parser for GeneSeqer

If you plan on generating seqfeatures from this output you could  
check out the Bio::Tools core modules for examples.  There are a few  
there that take program output and convert them to  
Bio::SeqFeature::Generic objects, including Bio::Tools:RNAMotif and  
Bio::Tools::tRNAscanSE.  If alignments are involved you might want  
something like Bio::SeqFeature::FeaturePair.  Not sure about using  
the SeqFeature::Annotation or others; I thought that the some of the  
Annotation/Annotatable stuff might be changing soon but I may be wrong.
