I still distribute a DOS version of my FSAP package, although
I no longer update it. FSAP programs can directly read GenBank
files downloaded from the net, and perform general sequence
tasks such as printing and translating sequences, restriction
digests, and similarity comparisons. 

FSAP can be obtained by anonymous FTP to, in 
directory psgendb. It is also available directly through the Web
at the URL listed below. Click on 'SOFTWARE' and 'FSAP' at that
site for more information.
