 Reads and writes nucleic/protein sequences in various
 formats. Data files may have multiple sequences.

 classic - the 1993 release, in C code
 java - the 1999 release, in Java code

 The java version 2, first available in 1999, continues support for the 
 "classic" C version, in that it includes the same command-line options. 
 It also has extensions for sequence documentation, feature table and other 
 additions, plus new sequence format conversions, and a lot of bug
 fixing. The java version includes a Graphic User Interface, and a
 Web (CGI) interface, as well as the classic Command line interface.
 This java version is also more efficient, working faster than 
 the compiled C classic version. 

 In other words, you probably want the newer java version.
