I have a question for VAX users of Don Gilbert's READSEQ conversion
I am trying to change the eukaryotic promoter database (epd29.seq)
from a FASTA format to a GCG format so GCG can perform FASTA
Dan Jacobson wrote in bionet.software (for unix):

Unfortunately, I do not know the equivalent commands for VAX use.
Can you tell me what the appropriate commands are? I don't want
lots of separate files for each promoter sequence as Dan suggests.
Our VAX is running VMS V5.4-2.
Any help will be appreciated, thanks.
