Hello,

a minor update of GCG-menu for VMS/OpenVMS is now available at the
EMBL-fileserver. The reason for the update is mainly to include support for
OpenVMS/AXP.

What is GCG-menu?
  It's a menu driven interface for the GCG programs. Users may find the
  program they need in a more intuitive way (requires only a VT100).

How to get it?

By mail:
 Send a message to "netserv at embl-heidelberg.de" containing the following
 lines in the body of the mail (leave the subject field empty).
    GET VAX_SOFTWARE:GCG_MENU.UAA
    GET VAX_SOFTWARE:UUD.C
    GET VAX_SOFTWARE:UNZIP.UUE
 GCG-menu will arrive in four parts. Extract the four parts, remove any mail
 header information and concatenate them in the right order into one file
 (e.g. GCG_MENU.UUE).
 Extract UUD.C, remove mail headers and compile & link it
    CC UUD.C
    LINK UUD,SYS$LIBRARY:VAXCRTL/LIB
 Assign a symbol for UUD and decode GCG_MENU.
    UUD :== $disk:[directory]UUD
    UUD GCG_MENU
 Now extract UNZIP in the same way and decode it. Then define a symbol for
 UNZIP and decompress GCG_MENU.ZIP (which you got by decoding GCG_MENU.UUE).
    UNZIP :== $disk1:[directory]UNZIP
    UNZIP GCG_MENU.ZIP
 The final result is a AAAREADME.TXT and GCG-MENU022.A . Install the program
 as described in the README-file.

By anonymous FTP:
 Connect to "ftp.embl-heidelberg.de" and go to /pub/software/vax where you
 will find all the files mentioned above. Choose ASCII transfer for all the
 files. GCG-menu consists of four files:
 - gcg_menu.uaa
 - gcg_menu.uab
 - gcg_menu.uac
 - gcg_menu.uad
 Then decode everything in the same way as described before.

Regards
  Christoph Gartmann
