Bionet has changed some since 1988. At that time, Bionet was
hosted at Intelligenetics as part of their Genbank contract,
and they included a software archive. The meaning you have
for Bionet is the biology Usenet newsgroups, but the software
archives also survive.
I did make a copy of the Intelligenetics public software archive,
most of which is still available at IUBio Archive
As part of its long running career, Bionet newsgroups have also
migrated to IUBio Archive (iubio.bio.indiana.edu = www. or net.bio.net now)
I wasn't able to find an original align.c from Miller and Myer
here, but Bill Pearson's FastA file set includes a version
that will probably suit you. See
optimal global alignment of two sequences with no short-cuts.
This program is a slightly modified version of one taken from E.
Myers and W. Miller. The algorithm is described in E. Myers and W.
Miller, "Optimal Alignments in Linear Space" (CABIOS (1988) 4:11-17).
protein driver for linear sequence comparison method

in fasta21u1d0.shar.Z and later archive files
or from ftp://ftp.bio.net/molbio/search/fasta/ -- same software as above
