   waveplot: plot sites around the wave of B-form DNA

   waveplot(searchfeatures: in, waveplotp: in, xyin: out, output: out)


   searchfeatures:  output of the search program containing the
   locations of a pattern along a sequence.

   xyin:  input to the xyplo program for plotting

   waveplotp:  parameters to control the program.  The file must contain the
      following parameters, one per line:

      parameterversion: The version number of the program.  This allows the
         user to be warned if an old parameter file is used.

      The parameters are like those in live:

      zerobase: integer; to set the phase of the wave by.
      wavelength: integer; The wave length in bases.  Usually 10.6.

      riconsensus: integer; Maximum value to divide Ri by to normalize
      color saturation.  If it is 0 or less, the saturation is set to

      These variables are from live but maybe not needed:
      wavevertical: integer; amount to shift colored wave vertically
      waveheight: integer; height of colored wave

   output: messages to the user


   When one identifies a set of sites, how are they oriented in
   physical space around the DNA relative to each other?  A zero
   coordinate is chosen by the user.  All sites that are exact
   multiples of 10.6 bp have the same orientation as a site at this
   coordinate.  The orientation of other sites is determined by
   repeatedly subtracting 10.6 bases per DNA twist from a coordinate
   until the value is above the zero coordinate but below 10.6.  The
   actual distance can be changed from 10.6 to whatever value the user
