SeqApp/SeqPup was started Sept. 1990 as MacApp sequence
editor/analysis platform on which analysis programs from
other authors could be easily incorporated into a useable
1 Mar 94: First public release of SeqPup, version -1.
It has plenty of bugs and missing features, including:
no Undo (this is a real bite to those used to it)
mostly no cut/copy/paste/clear
limited printing of documents or views

in place, shift, ...)
no pretty print views
no restriction maps
no dot plots
problems w/ window display & keeping track of active
I'll be adding back many of these features from the
Macintosh SeqApp as time permits.
