fastahack is a small application for indexing and extracting sequences and
subsequences from FASTA files.  The included Fasta.cpp library provides a FASTA
reader and indexer that can be embedded into applications which would benefit
from directly reading subsequences from FASTA files.  The library automatically
handles index file generation and use.
* FASTA index (.fai) generation for FASTA files
* Sequence extraction
* Subsequence extraction
* Sequence statistics (currently only entropy is provided)
Sequence and subsequence extraction use fseek64 to provide fastest-possible
extraction without RAM-intensive file loading operations.  This makes fastahack
a useful tool for bioinformaticists who need to quickly extract many
subsequences from a reference FASTA sequence.
This is the development package containing the statically linked
library and the header files.
