Hmmm... it looks like the VMS/UNIX/MSDOS worlds have difficulties talking
with each other. Explaination time. I made the zoo21.arc for a couple
of reasons... I thought everyone would have and know about ARC, and I did not
want to use the new ZOO to pack because of incompatabilities.

When some people said they wanted it packed in ZOO format I even put that up
on the server... I was even considering making a VMSSHAR file.

So considering the difficulties that some people are having I will make
a new directory for the ZOO sources so that they will be in plain ascii.
You will find them in /pub/sci/molbio/vax/zoosrc
