Thanks for all the requests for my VAX-program for shading/coloring of
multiple-aligned protein sequence display.
I have now extended the program for use with CLUSTAL output and fixed
some minor bugs.
The program is now availabel from the fileserver at EMBL.
Send a request containing the line
     GET VAX_SOFTWARE:BOXSHADE.UUE
to netserv at embl-heidelberg.de

Here is a short account on what the program does (and what is does not):

-the program does no multiple alignment by itself, you have to
 use CLUSTAL or align manually by LINEUP.
-the program takes CLUSTAL output files or LINEUP print files, written
 in PRETTY-format.
-the program asks for some options on how to do shading, coloring,
 inverting, upcasing and so on
-the program does a conversion into either SIXEL-format for printing
 with the DEC color-printer LJ250 or into UIS-metafile format.
 The UIS-format can be used by RENDER (part of VMS/VWS) for further
 conversion into a multitude of formats including POSTSCIPT.
