The matrix similarity search programs from the FSAP package
will do what you want. The matrix is printed with characters,
rather than high-resolution graphics. This has two advantages:
1) output can be printed on any printer
2) a character scoring scheme, originated by Jim Ostell,
gives you more information than dots do.
Most FSAP programs can be run from GDE.
SUN Solaris executables, as well as C source code, are available.
