Yes the version is a bit older than the current one which I will
clean up for posting to bionet.software.sources as soon as possible.

The more important part of the update is the database file.
This file is generated from the Prosite.dat file by a program
written by Jack A.M. Leunissen, CAOS/CAMM Center, Nijmegen, The Netherlands.

This means that once you have the searching program, and the data
conversion program, you can keep the database up to date your self.

Anyway, It will be about two weeks before the new version is ready for
distribution. VMS will no longer be supported as GCG has a program called
motif that does almost the same thing.
