Oops - sorry folks.... Just read note 15 of the readme file..

15. The standard command line separator for UNIX systems has been
changed from
'/' to '-'. ie. to give options on the command line, you now type

     clustalw input.aln -gapopen=8.0

instead of  clustalw input.aln /gapopen=8.0


Cheers (blushing...)

Martin
