I'm new to this "bionet software" world so let me please rephrase my
question since the responses I got were too general...

The question is :

Does somebody have any experience/opinions/recommendations about 
the freely available EMBL-database search/query tools ?


Is anybody out there using any of them ? Or everybody uses the
mail-server ? Eh ? 

I _KNOW_ about the EMBL ftp server, but from the 1-liners in the help/doc
files I can't find any package that would compile and run on a general Unix
workstation with a general C compiler. Of course, I can try to hack some of
these packages to make them run on my system(s) but is it worth the trouble ?
Is there any generally accepted tool ?
