WinDot seems popular, but several have had probs finding the windot.zip 
file.  Here are the addresses and directories of kosher windot files, which 
I have checked by ftping them and using pkunzip -t.

Name                 IP Number     Directory
~~~~                 ~~~~~~~~~     ~~~~~~~~~
ftp.bchs.uh.edu    /pub/gene-server/dos/windot.zip
fly.bio.indiana.edu /Incoming/windot.zip
s-ind2.dl.ac.uk   /incoming/windot.zip

If you're going to get the program from seqnet (s-ind2...) then don't get 
the program in the /dos directory because the zip file is corrupted.  The 
uncorrupted version is the the /incoming directory and has length 83,248 
bytes rather than 82,920 bytes.

Someone has been abusing Uncle Dan's /incoming directory, so now it's write-
only.  And Uncle Don's got a separate copy of the Windows version of 
readseq which now spanks under Windows because I compiled it with the 
Microsoft QuickWin library.  The file is /Incoming/winseq.zip, but if you 
get a copy of windot.zip it's in there too.
