Yes that could be a start. You could give the directory name as a
parameter, the oposite of the -reject parameter (-include ?).
In it's basic form it can just list the file content like embossdata
-showall is doing.
An example command that lists all the codon tables could be: 'showdata
Something else. In order not to contaminate the CODONS folder I created
a CUTG folder in the <emboss_data> directory containing the codon tables
extracted from the most recent CUTG. Problem now is a user has to add
the relative filename as a cfile option (backtranseq) in order EMBOSS to
find the new codon tables. Would it be an idea that you can set
$EMBOSS_DATA to a list of values instead of only 1 directory name ? In
that way, EMBOSS can access custom data directories.
Suppose the following:
If a codon table is not found in the usual place
(/usr/local/share/EMBOSS/data/CODONS) EMBOSS will look for them in other
places defined in EMBOSS_DATA (/my/other/emboss_data_dir/CUTG). Or
Does that make sense ?
