This is correct. The program was not put there by us: a search on the archive
server revealed it - dastardly work by us, eh? If you dont believe it, why

If programs are put on anonymous ftp sites, then you can`t blame
people for downloading them.

Swofford several months ago to get the full version of the PAUP program,
including documentation, and has not recieved anything in reply. Whether

program was there - mail me to check the full site title if you want.
