I badgered Conor into adding support for the .SCF format and as of
yesterday the latest version 1.1 will display Li-Cor, ALF and ABI traces
on a PC running either Win95 or Win3.1. I know it works on Li-Cor files
but I haven't an ALF file to test it on but it should be OK. The program
and associated .dll takes up a very small amount of disk space - about

It will also print the traces in colour, just like bona-fide ones, on
non-postscript colour printers ie colour inkjets.
