Converting embl to fasta format

I recently wanted to download the genome sequence for Plasmodium knowlesi from the Sanger ftp site and found that the sequence data is available in embl format. This meant that I needed to write a script to convert the embl format files to fasta format files. My perl script takes an embl format file as input, and makes a fasta format file as output.
