I am trying to install the PROSITE database into my EMBOSS installation. 
I obtained the files prosite.dat and prosite.doc by anonyous FTP from, and have placed both of these in the /EMBOSS/data/PROSITE 
directory. I then ran prosextract : this gave the following error

EMBOSS An error in prosextract.c at line 83:
Cannot open file data/PROSITE/prosite.dat

What am I doing wrong ??

I am running on a Mac PowerBook G4, under Darwin with XDarwin (XFree86 

Many thanks,

Alex Brown.
