I'm an EMBOSS newbie but have a simple question. For the pasteseq
program I'm trying to paste in the character '-' into my sequence:

> pasteseq -asequence foo.fa -bsequence insert.fa -pos 1 -outseq temp.fa

But my sequence is unchanged after I run the above command. However if
I change insert.fa to be the sequence NN it works fine. Is there
anyway I can insert the '-' character

Much thanks,
