ProSite Database

I have written some software that runs under Unix(tm) or MSDOS, that
will search a protein sequence for all of the patterns described in
Amos Baroich's Prosite database.

It requires the following:
	AWK (new awk or Gnu GAWK, GAWK is free, ftp'able software)
	The prosite database file prosite.doc

Basically, I have translated all the patterns to Unix style regular
expressions, and created some simple awk scripts to search protein

NOTE: the MKS (Mortice Kern Systems) version of AWK for MSDOS machines
is required for MSDOS use. The MSDOS version of GAWK can't handle 300+
regular expressions. I have no links with MKS except that it is a good

I would like to post a shell archive of this to bionet.software, if
there is interest. 

Here is a brief example of the output (short form):
