Dear Bionetters,

I am looking for some code to draw helical wheels of proteins.

Ideally what I would like is something that will take as input an
amino acids sequence, some parameters for the pitch, and the number of
amino acids per turn. With these inputs, it would output encapsualted
postscript or tek4010 drawing commands.

I someone has such code, I would be greatly appreciative to get the

I work on Sun Solaris2.X machines and can write c-code, but this is
something I think must exist.

Thanks in advance. If there is any interest, I will summarize what I
find out.
