        Dear EMBOSS team,

While giving a course yesterday I was reminded of the following thing :
Under GCG the restriction mapping programs have a parameter allowing to
precise sequence ranges where enzymes are not allowed to cut. This can be
very useful, e.g. when you want to select restriction enzymes that allow
to cut out a gene to be cloned (which of course should not cut inside the
gene). Would it not be nice if the EMBOSS programs had the same
functionality ? Does anybody else also feel a need for this feature ?

        Guy Bottu,
