  There are several new search items at IUBio archive.
  These include
      Search GenBank (latest full release)/ <??>
      Search GenBank (weekly updates)/ <??>
      Search Swiss-Protein (latest full release)/ <??>
      Genes/ Search FlyBase Genes data/ <??>
      People/ Search FlyBase People addresses / <??>
      Stocks/ Search Bloomington USA stocks/ <??> and others
      Refs/ Search FlyBase References/ <??>
      Search IUBio archive ReadMes & Help files/ <??>
      Search Bionet News thru IUBio / <??>
  All employ the new Gopher+ methods.  The reason for adding these
  items is to allow you to specify more options and choices for
  your search.  These items let you ask for a maximum number of matches,
  and for the returned matches, you get also a document with just
  the titles (which is all some of you want), and the further choice
  to fetch items separately or all in a batch as one document.

  This new Gopher+ method does not work properly with the older
  gopher- clients.  But for those of you using Gopher+ clients, you now 
  have more options for searching.  The older Search items will remain. 
  I recommend that you consider switching to one of the newer
  Gopher+ clients if you are using an older, non-gopher+ client.
  Here is a list of Gopher+ clients that will work properly with
  these new searches:

	     (as of 15 Oct 93)
	   Unix curses (Uminn,v.2.08)
	   Mac TurboGopher (v.1.07)  
	   Mac GopherApp++ (v.2.0)   
	   MSWin HGopher   (v.2.2) 
   You may find copies of these in the folder 
   on this server. However, it is possibly these will be older versions.
   You may need to look at the server at for pointers
   to the newest software versions.
