Accession List from Blast output? (Was: Re: [Bioclusters] Seqret)

Hi Simon,

Thanks for the pointers.  My nt database is segmented into 512 MB 
chunks.  I have found that the NCBI "fastacmd" command will do for now. 
  I do, however, have one more question:

Does anyone know how one would go about getting output which contains 
only a list of accession numbers of the matching sequeces from running 
a Blastp?
