My apologies... I *really* must update it, and get it to run under
Windows and/or Unix.  I haven't been able to program anything for >2
years now, as I am really a lab-bench scientist, not a serious
programmer.  I used to write these things while waiting for sequencing
gels to run. The ABI sequencer spoilt that ;-) I'll try and churn out
a version that at least uses stretches of aa >80.
