A Unix-compatible source code for COILS 2.1, a PC/DOS
version of COILS 2.1 and a Mac version of COILS 1.1
are now available on the anonymous ftpserver
FTP.BIOCHEM.MPG.DE. The files are found in the
new folder Coils.
The list of files and their contents:
coils2.cplus.txt Text file containing the c++ source
code for COILS 2.1. This code can be
compiled on UNIX machines. The transfer
of the original Vax Pascal code to c++
was made by by Larry Harvie
(harvie at owl.WPI.EDU).
coils2.uue UUencoded, zipped archive containing the
PC/DOS compilation of the c++ code in file
Macstripe.hqx BinHex4 archive containing Macstripe 1.3.1.
The program represents the Macintosh version
of COILS 1.1 and was written by Alex Knight
(knight at wi.mit.edu).
vms Folder containing the Vax/VMS COILS 2.1
program, its documentation and prerelease
versions of auxiliary programs.
Many thanks to Larry Harvie and Alex Knight for making their
programs available. Please note that the c++ programs have a
slightly different input file range than the original Vax Pascal
program: they only accept one sequence per input file and are
thrown into a loop by the * character. Please refer to the
documentation file COILS2.DOC in the vms folder before using
