What you need to use it is
This version includes a Graphic User Interface (GUI) for those who
prefer not to learn the many command line options, or who's
workstation lacks a command-line interface (which probably
includes most but the hardy bioinformaticians :).

This version includes a Common Gateway Interface (CGI) for use from a web server. One web server where you can find this is IUBio Archive. See the extended help for details and installing your own readseq web cgi, or see readseq.jsp for web JSP.
This version also includes the same old Command Line Interface (CLI) that the 1992 version supported, so you can drop it in place of the older, slower, bugger, less functional Readseq from that decade.
Programmers will find the source code here also, in
with JavaDoc generated documents in readseq-javadocs.zip.
You will find a nearly identical source version bundled with other iubio java source. This is split into java 1.3/javac-compatible source code (one public class/file, file name == public class name) at this folder,
http://iubio.bio.indiana.edu/soft/molbio/java/source/ as iubio-javalib.tar.gz
with expectation in summer 2002 this will become reference readseq source.
Home of this package is http://iubio.bio.indiana.edu/soft/molbio/readseq/java/
Anyone can use Readseq. There are no copyright restrictions, it is in the PUBLIC DOMAIN.
