EMBOSS Community,

I’ve looked at the example application “seqret” and I think I understand it well enough.  However, I am more interested in being able to programmatically call the “needle” application without a system call.  More specifically, I would like to simply use emboss’s NW alignment function *without* writing a full application.  I guess another way to ask this is, I have a completely different way of gathering command-line user input that doesn’t use Ajax/ACD, can I still use emboss for sequence alignment?  That’s the kind of example I need.  Any help is appreciated.  Thanks.
