I just discovered a memory allocation problem in MacPattern v2.0.
For BLOCKS searches, if the input sequence was less than 60 residues
long, MacPattern would run out of memory quickly.
This bug is fixed in v2.0.1.

MacPattern is a Macintosh application for protein sequence analysis
using the PROSITE and BLOCKS databases and for the identification
of statistically significant specific protein segments.

MacPattern can be obtained
