[EMBOSS] Convert scf to fasta

I have a large number of .scf files that I need to batch convert to  
fasta format. I thought that abiview would be able to perform this  
function but I cannot get abiview to read the .scf files (although  
various sources on the internet suggest that it should be able to do  
so). It reads and displays .ab1 files with no problems. The webpage  
describing input formats (http://emboss.sourceforge.net/docs/themes/SequenceFormats.html 
) doesn't mention scf. Is there an EMBOSS application that would  
convert .scf to .fa? Any help would be greatly appreciated. I am  
running Mac OSX 10.5.8 with EMBOSS 6.1.0-4 installed via fink.

Best wishes,

Phil Jones
