Rob,
        I'm puzzled why you posted this to the discussion group.

        It arrived at this BITNET site with the carat-corruption (I fixed it
in the table above, so it will go back to the same corruption for BITNET
recipients of this message).  I extracted this and the .uab, decoded them with
the corruptions still present using the LATEST VERSION of Rainer's UUD, and
the resultant ZOO archive is identical to that which I had encoded with
Rainer's UUE and sent to software-sources at genbank.bio.net.

        So, if this forum wants to set up a BIOSCI e-mail homolog of
bionet.molbio.software.sources, thanks to Rainer's software there are no
technical/gateway impediments.  My vote is to do that 8-).

        My vote is still not to post sources to the discussion group, just the
README files, or other summaries of what's been posted to .sources.

        My worries about possible viruses in executables have not abated, even
though I just posted some (executables, not viruses 8-).  Before actually
using the .EXE's from ZIP_VMS.ZOO, do a   $ zoo -list zip_vms   and MAKE SURE
you get the same CRC's as in my original:
