There are one or two available at EMBL. The one I know of is called
PLASMIDG.EXE. It comes uuencoded as PLASMIDG.UAA and PLASMIDG.UAB via
e-mail. You will need EMBL's uudecode program to convert it. Instructions
are as follows:

1. E-mail to NETSERV at EMBL-Heidelberg.DE

2. Save the messages you receive as PLASMIDG.UAA and PLASMIDG.UAB. You might

3. Use a generic uudecoder to convert UUEMBL.UUE to UUEMBL.EXE -a
self-extracting compression containing UUE.EXE and UUD.EXE. If you don't
have or can't get a hold of a generic uudecoder read the DOS_SOFTWARE
DIRECTORY message you will receive for instructions.

4. Type UUD PLASMIDG.UAA <Enter> to recombine the two files and convert them
to a self-extracting executable. And your off!!!!! A .DOC file is included.
