The EMBOSS program fuzznuc will search sequences or databases for
arbitrary, short patterns in a similar manner to findpatterns. It
allows a number of mismatches to be supplied.

The output is more terse than findpatterns, but on the other hand
there are no arbitrary limits on the length of sequence to be searched
or number of hits reported.

fuzznuc is part of the EMBOSS package which already covers much of
GCG's functionality. It's homepage is at:
