Unfortunately, now it no longer is there. File README.CHANGES in
"The molecular biology directory structure has changed on this server.
It has been set up to mirror the popular sites at EMBL and INDIANA.
Some of the programmes in the old directories may have disappeared
but generally most of the software can still be found in the mirror
I'll try to find a new home for the program. Meanwhile, email me.
(please tell me whether you can receive binary attachments to emails,
or whether I have to send it in uucoded form.)
