Hi all,

We use GCG version 8.0 under IRIX 5.3, and I recently got the following 
error message from gcg_pressdb when converting a database to BLAST format:

   database too big; raise ENTRY_MAX

I have had a good look through the sources, but I cannot find any 
reference to this (presumably) preprocessor macro. I split the database 
into two parts, which has solved the problem for now.

Does anyone know how to at least find out what its value is, and if it is 
possible to increase it?

Many thanks for any help,
