    Unhappy FASTA files

    Hi,
    Is there any library or some thing similar in C++ for reading sequences form a multi-fasta file (such as different DNA sequences in a file). As far as I know, this is a simple task with Perl, but I ( new to c++) have not seen any thing in C++ to do so? Any clue Please.
    Thanks

    From what I can see, the format is quite trivial, so I expect that someone with a reasonable amount of C or C++ experience can cobble together a parser for it in say half a day or so.

    There is more info here:

    Compilers can produce warnings - make the compiler programmers happy: Use them!
