I thought I would share this solution to my problem if any of you are

1)Create a text file with these three lines in it

	pattern file start_codon
	Start_C 1 ATG 0

2)Save as start_codon.dat
3)run map in WPI using start_codon.dat as the enzyme data file instead
of the default dat file.
4)the output should give the locations of the start codons
