   dashseq: convert aligned sequences with dashes to pure sequences

   dashseq(dashedseq: in, dashseqp: in, sequ: out, output: out)


   dashedseq:  Aligned DNA sequences, one per line.
      The first one is the 'cononical sequence and it may not contain
      any dashes.
      The following lines are copied to the sequ output except when
      there is a dash, it is replaced by the corresponding letter
      in the canonical sequence.

   sequ:  pure sequence without dashes.

   dashseqp:  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.

      not used yet.

   output: messages to the user


   Sometimes sequnces are given with dashes to indicate that the letter
   is the same as the letter in a cononical
