There is a tool in euler called, for assembly sans error correction, which just builds a de Bruijn graph, and hands you the result. You can parse the output to find which reads are on the same contig, or run some "light" error correction on the resulting graph.

However, you may want to use the error correction, since that can patch overlaps in low-coverage projects. It just takes forever. Currently euler-sr guesses the average coverage, but this goes bad in very high and very low coverage projects. In the release I'll post later tonight, there is an option to specify the minimal coverage (most likely 2).

thanks - looking forward to the update.
