Hello out there,
 this one has also been posted to

I just submitted a new update of the program PROFILEGRAPH to the major
ftp-servers for molbio-software.
PROFILEGRAPH is a user friendly program for graphical analysis of protein
primary structure.
The current version is V1.3, it will be available from

netserv at   (by mailserver) or from                 (by anonymous ftp)

I enclosed the README file below, among other things the differences to
the previously released version are described.
Feel free to send any comment to the author, use the address given at the
bottom of the README file.

executable section:   you need these files for running PROfileGRAPH
documentary section:  you need one of these files for understanding it
source code section:  you need these file + Turbo Pascal 5.5 for 
                      modifying and recompiling it.

new features:

 * full SVGA support using J. Hargraves SVGA-drivers. 
 * PROfileGRAPH includes a new MOUSE-unit to provide mouse-usage 
   in SVGA modes (not trivial)
 * new feature for temporarily visiting DOS
 * new feature for analyzing amphipathic structures
 * new TPGL to POSTSCRIPT converter
 * automatic use of the above converter for getting POSTSCRIPT output
 * use of multiple configuration files for personal preferences
 * PROfileGRAPH now works with overlays
 * bug fixed in printer drivers for hardcopy
 * some minor bug fixes
last minute informations:

* since PROfileGRAPH now uses overlays this has to be accounted for when
  recompiling it. All units are compiled with compiler options
  $O+ (overlays allowed)
  $F+ (far coding)
  the program expects its overlay file appended to the .EXE file.
  to provide this, one has to
                   COPY/b  PROGRAPH.EXE+PROGRAPH.OVR
  after compiling the program.
* in the documentary section, paragraphs that have major changes compared
  to the previous release are marked with bars at the left side.
  If you need the documentation in other formats, contact me at the address
  given below.


 a new release of COMAP will appear together with PROfileGRAPH V1.3
 COMAP uses the same graphical user interface and helps in the
 restriction mapping of relatively small DNA fragments ( program will 
 disintegrate if applied to YACs :-)
 I am not sure if it really useful, but at our site some people really 
 use it, and it is for sure fun to try.
