I have moved it from /pub/sci/incoming to /pub/sci/molbio/msdos
It is there as a zip file.

If anyone went into /pub/sci/incoming they would not be able to "see"
anything since the protection is set up so that the files remain "invisible"
to everyone except the maintainers. You see some the "incoming" directories
of some sites have been abused by boys who want to distribute "naughty Gifs"
via anonymous ftp. You would suddenly loose alot of disk space, and the
ftp traffic into your site would make a sudden leap. As it is we keep a
daily track of everything that comes into the incoming directories, so we
know if something strange is going on.

By the way I posted COMAP to so for those fortunate
enough to be on USENET you can get the UUENCODED files from there.

(Confession time: John Nash pointed out that uae was in actual fact uad
so I reposted uae. Get those decoders working)
