                -amphipathic toggle -squares string -diamonds string -octags string

       pepwheel -help


       pepwheel is a command line program from EMBOSS (“the European Molecular Biology Open
       Software Suite”). It is part of the "Display,Protein:2D Structure" command group(s).


   Input section
       -sequence sequence

   Output section
       -wheel boolean
           Default value: Y

       -steps integer
           The number of residues plotted per turn is this value divided by the 'turns' value.
           Default value: 18

       -turns integer
           The number of residues plotted per turn is the 'steps' value divided by this value.
           Default value: 5

       -graph graph

   Markup section
       -amphipathic toggle
           If this is true then the residues ACFGILMVWY are marked as squares and all other
           residues are unmarked. This overrides any other markup that you may have specified
           using the qualifiers '-squares', '-diamonds' and '-octags'.

       -squares string
           By default the aliphatic residues ILVM are marked with squares. Default value: ILVM

       -diamonds string
           By default the residues DENQST are marked with diamonds. Default value: DENQST

       -octags string
           By default the positively charged residues HKR are marked with octagons. Default
           value: HKR
