bug in TIGR assembler?

Hi,

I have installed asmg, the fragment assembly program used at the 
TIGR (on a DECalpha/OSF1), and I think I have found a bug in it.

The symptom was that the program did nothing, without complaining that
something went wrong and without error like segmentation violation or the like.

In the file asmg.c, line 842:

        seqrec_end = seqrec_ptr;

must be changed, since there is just before a realloc that changes the start address 
of the memory area where all the data resides, so that every other pointer is after
that obsolete. The change is :

	seqrec_end = seqrec_array + num_seqs;


If you know how to contact people who have written asmg, I would be
also interested.
If somebody have experiments with this program, I am interested too!

Cheers,
