name
   lenin: convert a list of lengths into Delila instructions

synopsis
   lenin(lengths: in, leninp: in, finst: out, linst: out, output: out)

files
   lengths: The olength or slength file from dbinst.
      The file is expected to contain comment lines that start with '*'.
      These are followed by columns of LENGTH, FIRST-POSITION,
      LAST-POSITION and PIECE-NAME.
   leninp: parameters to control the program.
       First line: FROM and TO for the finst instructions
       Second line: FROM and TO for the linst instructions
   finst:  Delila instructions constructed from the lengths file
      according to the parameter file, and the FIRST-POSITION of the object
      or space.
   linst:  Delila instructions constructed from the lengths file
      according to the parameter file, and the LAST-POSITION of the object
      or space.
   output: messages to the user

description
   The program allows one to make a set of instructions that correspond
   to the ends of objects that exist in the GenBank entries.
   Dbinst does not do this; and it is easier to do it this way.

   For the finst file, the Delila instructions created are of the form:

   piece PIECE-NAME;
   get from FIRST-POSTION FROM.first to FIRST-POSITION TO.first;

   while for the linst file, the Delila instructions created are of the form:

   piece PIECE-NAME;
   get from LAST-POSTION FROM.last to LAST-POSITION TO.last;

bugs
   Title of finst is not correct.  To correct, don't have dbinst put
the title, and have lenin construct it.
