sequence_db.write() -- write a database of sequences

write(chains_list, seq_database_file, seq_database_format)
This command will write a database of sequences currently in memory, either in the PIR, FASTA, or BINARY format. The chains_list file is written only for the PIR or FASTA formats.

BINARY files are standard HDF5 files, and are machine-independent. Note, however, that they are not compatible with older versions of MODELLER.

Example: See command.
