Dear fellow netters,

With the permission of Dr Amos Bairoch, we have waisindexed his PROSITE
dictionary in two ways.
a) prosite.doc documentation with header lines adjusted to contain the
   entry_name and PDOC numbers etc.
b) prosite.lis file 

They can now be searched by WAIS if you include the following two .src
files in your wais-sources directory.

This server at in Singapore is up currently on an
experimental basis.  I would appreciate if folks might like to try
it to check the response time.  (Rob Harper has tried it and he says
it works.) Please send your comments also regarding the way the
waisindexing has been carried out.
