dbiblast indexes a BLAST database created by the NCBI indexing programs (formatdb, pressdb, or setdb) and builds EMBL CD-ROM format index files.

Here is a sample session with dbiblast, using a BLAST2 protein database:

% dbiblast       NCBI : NCBI with | characters        GCG : GCG format dbname:entryname     SIMPLE : ID and accession         ID : entryname    UNKNOWN : unknown Entry format [unknown]: gcg Database name: swnew Database directory [.]: /nfs/disk42/pmr/emboss/test/blastp2/ database base filename [swnew]: Release number [0.0]: Index date [00/00/00]: 04/02/00          N : nucleic          P : protein          ? : unknown Sequence type [unknown]: p          1 : wublast and setdb/pressdb          2 : formatdb          0 : unknown Blast index version [unknown]: 2
