Conceptually, MAP, MAPPLOT, or MAPSORT programs can treat any sequences (DNA, protein, 
RNA, or whatever non-biological sequences if to the extreme) and find patterns or 
restriction sites (in cases of DNA or protein) using a user or pre-defined data file.
And this is the key feature of almost all GCG programs: no built-in 'hard' definition of 
input and output, and a program only represents an algorithm which can apply to variety 
of files (input or output, user-defined or pre-defined in GCG package).
