This is one of the extensions included in the EGCG package. The MAPSELECT
program is a version of MAP that writes a new enzyme file. You can then
use this file with /ENZFILE=filename (note: it must be ENZFILE not ENZYME
as in your example, otherwise MAP ignores it) in a later run of MAP.

The EGCG programs are available by anonymous FTP for VMS systems from
ftp.embl-heidelberg.de in directory pub/software/vax/egcg (the older version
distributed with GCG VMS and Unix versions did not include MAPSELECT).
