[Bioperl-l] Easily parsable command line BLAST output

The following has that information:


In short:

-m      type       SearchIO -format
0       text       blast
7       XML        blastxml
8       tabular    blasttable
9       tabular    blasttable

You should read the HOWTO and specific documentation for the  
Bio::SearchIO module just in case, and let us know if there are any  
spots that need improvement.

There are varied reports some of the alignment-based output is  
parsable via AlignIO somehow, but I haven't attempted it.
