My sincere thanks to everyone who replied to my request for help on PIR.
I have successfully retrieved the sequences I needed by sending e-mail
commond to FILESERV at GUNBRF.BITNET. The best way to start with is to send
the command HELP to this address. However, anyone may find it otherwise.
A side story is that the e-mail protein sequence search against PIR database
is free and very fast (maybe this is because of the fact that I was doing it
over the weekend?).
