Name of contribution: seqsplit

Summary description: Splitting Long Sequences of Letters (DNA, RNA, 
  Proteins, Etc.), v0.1
License type: lppl

Announcement text given by the package's contributor: 
Sometimes one needs to typeset long sentences of letters, which should 
not have spaces between them (like letters in words), but could be split 
between lines at any point, often without a hyphenation character.  This 
problem was formulated at the PracticalTeX-2006 conference by Klaus 
Hoeppner.  In the general discussion several solutions were suggested.  
This package implements the one belonging to, I believe, Peter Flynn.
