People have been bugging me to release recent work on tacg and while 
I've been happy to oblige on a case by case basis, I haven't update 
the sourceforge release for a (very long) while.  Now I have.

tacg is a GPL'ed command-line program for *nix that performs many of 
the common routines in pattern matching in biological strings. It was 
originally designed for restriction enzyme analysis and while that 
still forms a core of the program, it has been expanded to fill more 
roles, sort of a 'grep' for DNA. 

Like grep, it's relatively small, fast (5-30x comparable GCG apps), 
memory efficient (>10x more efficient than the EMBOSS apps), has tons 
of options, but has relatively crude text output (except for the PDF 
plasmid maps).

See http://tacg.sourceforge.net for details.

Cheers, Harry
