The EGCG (extended GCG) suite of programs includes SIGCLEAVE, which is
exactly what you ask for. SIGCLEAVE was one of the first EGCG programs
to be developed.

EGCG is a suite of programs that extends and complements the GCG package.

EGCG 8.1 works with (and requires) GCG 8.1, and is available from
ftp.sanger.ac.uk in directory pub/pmr/egcg81

EGCG 9.0 is under development (which will of course work with and require
GCG 9.0), and a beta release will be available in a few weeks.

More information soon through my Web page.
