I am using EMBOSS 1.9.1 on a Solaris 2.8 machine.
I would like to analyze large viruses, ~185 kb.
I seem to be having some odd errors running the getorf
program on sequences of this size. No error messages, but 
getorf is not finding orfs that I know are there.
What is the maximum size sequence that EMBOSS can handle?
I looked through the documentation but could not find info.
Is the defined as integer (32767)?
