Search for sequences within a length range:
  FINDPATTERNS => define a pattern like  <X(X){48,98}X> => should find all
  sequences that are at least 50 in lenght and not longer than 100. There
  is a bug in GCG V7.3 when you use such a pattern but it is supposed to
  be fixed in V8.0.

Search for genomic or mRNA or coding nucleotide sequences
  This depends on the documentation present in the sequence's reference
  section. So this won't fit into GCG very well. Try Thure Etzold's SRS
  instead. But I would like such a program as well.
