Asked by Priya on 6 Jun 2013

I have following weblink:

http://www.rcsb.org/pdb/explore/sequenceText.do?structureId=1APS&chainId=A

Kindly open this weblink to see the contents.

I wish to save the ONLY CERTAIN PARTS of this file in a text file.

Desired content to be saved in a text file with spaces wherever present in original text:

 STARPLKSVD YEVFGRVQGV CFRMYAEDEA RKIGVVGWVK NTSKGTVTGQ
  TTS EEEEE EEEE TTS     TTHHHHHH HHHT EEEEE   TT EEEEE 
 VQGPEEKVNS MKSWLSKVGS PSSRIDRTNF SNEKTISKLE YSNFSVRY
 EEEEHHHHHH HHHSSSS    SSS    EEE EEEEEESS   SSSEEEE

Secondly, we can see there are spaces after every tenth character in all lines. I would like to remove only these spaces which occur after every tenth character and save this content in a text file.

Is it possible ? Can any one help in this regard ?

My output should look like:

 STARPLKSVDYEVFGRVQGVCFRMYAEDEARKIGVVGWVKNTSKGTVTGQ
  TTS EEEEEEEEE TTS    TTHHHHHHHHHT EEEEE  TT EEEEE 
 VQGPEEKVNSMKSWLSKVGSPSSRIDRTNFSNEKTISKLEYSNFSVRY

urlwrite(). Then read in the resulting file and process it.

Hi thanks for reply.

I tried both urlread and urlwrite earlier, but they give following error:

??? Error using ==> urlwrite at 140 Error downloading URL. Your network connection may be down or your proxy settings improperly configured.

I checked all my proxy settings, did not figure out anything to fix this error.

It works for me.
