Hi Eric,

Edward Kirton wrote the original BLAST DB datatypes - I'm not sure
how to nicely define open ended file lists for datatypes, but also the
makeblastdb wrapper output does not have this problem (yet).
If and when we try to support partitioned BLAST databases (with a
*.nal or *.pal alias file) then this would be needed.

I would think that the HTML composite datatype might be a better
guide here, since you will order get lots of child files (images etc).

My guess is the whole directory may be transferred anyway, but
having "undefined" files could be a problem at some point...



Hi Peter,
Okay, that generally answers that, I'm using the HTML datatype now, hopefully it'll accomplish what I want it to. Thanks for this information!
