Given a list of accession numbers (i.e. sequence names) and one or more file formats, generate a new file that contains only those sequences.


accnos, fasta, name, group, alignreport; each takes a file name


accnos and one of fasta/name/group/alignreport




  1. read accnos file into a set<string> container, close the file
  2. read through the file to be parsed and for each entry, if the sequence name is in the set<string> container:
    • spit the data out to the new file and delete the entry from the set<string> container
    • otherwise do nothing
