PPCMatrix V1.01 is a versatile dotmatrix program for the Apple
Macintosh, optimized for the PowerPC. It includes many additional
features:

       Built in sequence editor, with speech (currently limited to 32k). 
       Reverse, complement, reverse-complement of sequences. 
       Reads text, GCG, PIR formats. 
       Translations (every frame, best ORF, 3-frame nested translation). 
       Displays alignments of dotmatrix regions that have been selected
with the mouse. 

The special feature of the program is that it can read large (only
limited by available memory) sequences, which can be translated in a
special format, the
3-frame nested translation. The 3-frame nested translation can be
compared to protein sequences. Thus identifications of sequence
similarities are possible even
in case of frameshifts (due to sequence errors), or when exons are in
different reading frames.

The program is released on shareware basis. 
A 68k version is also available.
