[EMBOSS] dreg: does it search both strands?

Dear Peter,

A lot of the time for nucleotide stuff it makes sense to search both 
strands. Of course, it isn't hard to search one strand, then the other. 
But this introduces an extra step. I wonder if there could be some 
convenient option to do this, and if it should perhaps be the default? 
(As with NCBI blastall with any kind of nucleotide search.)

This would affect programs beyond just dreg and, though it would be OK 
for our work, perhaps it wouldn't make sense for others. Just a thought.

Best regards,
