As described in the forthcoming paper Faster Sequential Genetic
Linkage Computations (American Journal of Human Genetics, to appear in
the July 1993 issue), modified versions of the general pedigree
programs of LINKAGE 5.1 are now available via ftp as follows:

	login: anonymous
	password: <your email address>
	cd fastlink.51

A PostScript version of the paper can be found in the file
Further information on compiling the programs is given in the README

A side benefit of this work is that these programs are in C.
