DbStats counts the number of entries and the total lengths of sequence entries in a GCG formatted database.
DbStats reports simple statistics for a set of sequence files in a directory, for example all individual sequence files in the Embl or GenBank directories.

Here is a sample session with DbStats
% dbstats DBSTATS uses any sequences DBSTATS of what sequence(s) ? Sw:*_ecoli What should I call the output file (* db.stats *) ? ec.stats DbStats complete: Categories: 0 Entries: 3,466 Total Length: 1,043,874 CPU: 18.96 %
The output from DbStats is a simple report of the number and total length of entries in a set of selected database sequences. from GCG formatted sequence databases.
