I think that almost all of the newer sequence analysis packages include
options to do this. Additionally, there is a program called SIGSEQ available
from the EMBL file server by A.M. Popowicz (CABIOS 4 (88), 405), incl. C
source code, for DOS and UNIX. Although I haven't tried it I assume it will
also run under VMS.

A program called SigCleave, written by Peter Rice, is also available as part
of the GCGEMBL package.
