   mutseq: mutate a sequence

   mutseq(sequseed: in, mutseqp: in, output: out)


   sequseed:  DNA sequence and seed.  The first line contains
      a sequence of only the characters [acgt].  The second line
      contains a random number seed between 0 and 1.
      The sequence may be of any length less than constant maxsequ.

   mutseqp:  parameters to control the program.  The file must contain the
      following parameters, one per line:

      parameterversion: The version number of the program.  This allows the
         user to be warned if an old parameter file is used.

      If the first line contains 'v' then the program will
      show the steps it used, verbose mode.

   output: messages to the user


   The program reads in a DNA sequence and a random number seed (a
   real number between 0 and 1) from the sequseed file.  It makes a
   new random number seed and then uses that to select a base to
   modify and a base to modify it to.  The result is written back out
   to the sequseed file.


   An example mutseqp parameter file:

1.00  version of mutseq that this parameter file is designed for.
