(none) [Accessible Surface Area]

I don't know exactly what program "ASA" is, but I have access to a version
of T. J. Richmond's program ANAREA which calculates the surface area
of a molecules accessible to a 1.4 A radius sphere ("water").  It does
the calculation analytically, as opposed to the approximation done by
Fred Richards' program ACCESS.

I have ANAREA as part of a package called "VADAR."  You should be able to
get info by emailing
	vadar at procyon.biochem.ualberta.ca

I don't have the address from which I originally ftp'd it.

I know that SGI was supported;  they may have branched out, or they might
not have.  On the other hand, it shouldn't be a problem to get source
code from them.

If you can't run VADAR, it should be easy to find Fred Richards
program ACCESS and how to get it at

I suspect you may to email Pat Fleming (fleming at csb.yale.edu) to obtain
the source.  I'm pretty sure I no longer have the source code for ACCESS,
but maybe someone else can mail it to you.

Good luck,
