A post-processor called Malform which converts the output from
Maligned to a form suitable for PostScript printers in now available.
(Maligned makes it easy to edit multiple sequence alignments because the
matching regions are highlighted on the screen and are redisplayed when the
alignment is changed.) Malform, like Maligned, runs on VAX/VMS systems, and
they will generate these font styles for a PostScript laser printer:
normal, bold, italics, reverse (white letters on a black background),
outline, crosshatch, hash, lightgrey, darkgrey and faint. Maligned can use
three highlighting styles (plus normal) at once to show different levels of
Malform can be obtained by anonymous FTP from MENUDO.UH.EDU (look
for /pub/genbank-server/vms/malform.uue) or from FTP.BIO.INDIANA.EDU (look
for /Incoming/malform.uue or /Incoming/malform.zoo), or from the EMBL
fileserver by sending the message GET VAX_SOFTWARE:MALFORM.UUE to
NETSERV at EMBL.BITNET or NETSERV at EMBL-HEIDELBERG.DE.
If there are any questions concerning Malform or Maligned, I'll be
happy to help with them.
