[Bioperl-l] bl2seq for many

Not sure what you mean here, as bl2seq uses two sequences.  From the  
bl2seq doc:
"Bl2seq performs a comparison between two sequences using either the  
blastn or blastp algorithm. Both sequences must be either nucleotides  
or proteins. The options may be obtained by executing 'bl2seq -'."
If you mean running multiple rounds of bl2seq with varying sequences,  
the boilerplate demo in the Bio::Tools::Run::StandAloneBlast synopsis  
could be modified to do what you want:

my $factory = Bio::Tools::Run::StandAloneBlast->new(-program =>  
# grab two sequences at a time (loop?) and run bl2seq
my $bl2seq_report = $factory->bl2seq($seq1, $seq2);

Does this answer your question?
