removing columns from phylip infiles

I often encounter the situation where I want to use only part of a 
sequence alignment as a phylip infile. (for example to exclude all 
postions where there is a gap in any of the sequences or where the 
alignment appears uncertain). Until recently we had an editor which 
could remove columns or blocks of columns from selected lines of the 
alignment to generate the input file. Sadly it was very obsolete and the 
only machine which could run it has died. Does anyone know of an editor 
which can do this? We are mainly using Macs, but also have access to PCs 
and UNIX( via telnet).

Many thanks

Jeremy
