fasta3 has just been updated by the author.
Quoting Bill Pearson (the author):
o This version corrects a but in the display of alignment
coordinates in some cases (only for fasta34(_t) and ssearch34(_t).
o It also provides new functions for reading the ASN.1 binary
blastpgp checkpoint files:
blastpgp -J T -C checkpoint_file -u 2 ...
o This code was designed to allow users of the NCBI BLAST WWW
site to independently evaluate statistical estimates by
downloading the encoded PSSM data. Unfortunately, last week,
just as I finished the code, NCBI changed their ASN.1 binary
structure with the introduction of blast2.2.14. Unfortunately,
blast2.2.14 is only available over the web, not from their FTP
site. When the new version of the program (and perhaps an
updated toolkit) is available, I hope to support their new
Notes from the port maintainer -- that's me :)
o fasta34t25d7 now includes the 'Makefile.freebsd' that was part
of the FreeBSD port, so I removed it from files/ and
removed the post-extract target accordingly.
As a future reference -- just in case future maintainers are
fond of reading old PRs :) -- please notify the author (Bill
Pearson) of changes in the Makefile.freebsd file, so that the
changes are included in the next fasta3 release.
o note to self: the next fasta3 version should be done in sync
with the ncbi-toolkit once the NCBI releases a toolkit that
o CCed sem, who committed the last fasta3 update a week ago :)
