calculating MW of DNA

Take a look at this online program provided by IDT (No Affiliation).  It
will give you the molecular weight of oligos you enter.  I don't know how
long of a sequence it will accept.

I don't have time to do it but this would be a fairly simple Perl script.
Read in a sequence --> Add molecular weight of each base to a running

Good Luck,

Does anyone know of a program that calculates the molecular weight of DNA
(taking into account the base composition) ?
Thanks, Jan
