loopDloop is a Macintosh software tool for drawing and editing
RNA secondary structure displays for molecular biology.    

This is a secondary structure drawing program - it is not
an RNA folding program.  The base pairings (i.e. secondary 
structure) are defined by the user, not predicted by the 
program.  LoopDloop then allows the manipulation of the 
resulting secondary structure representation.

loopDloop accepts data in three forms: CT (connect) file format,
a file with interleaved sequence and pairing character lines,
or the format for Gary Olsen's LOOPSOL program.
 
You can obtain new releases of this software thru anonymous ftp 
to ftp.bio.indiana.edu, in folder /molbio/loopdloop/, as 
loopdloop.hqx, or using Internet Gopher to ftp.bio.indiana.edu, 
in a folder called "IUBio Software+Data/molbio/loopdloop/".

History

18 July 94, v 1.2a63 & 1.2a64.  The expiration date is removed from the
 the software.  Version a63 is generic Motorola 68000 code, and should run
 albeit slowly on PowerMacs.  Version a64 is Motorola 68020-68040 + Math FPU
 specific, and will run faster on Macs with those processors.  This is likely
 the last Macintosh-only version as a conversion to the platform-independent
 framework DCLAP is underway.

4 August 92, v 1.2a57 -- First public release of loopDloop.
