Molscript and encapsulated postscript.

The trouble is that on a Mac the file type is set to text and so
programs do not see the file as EPSF. The fix is to ftp (or whatever)
your file onto your Mac, and then use Resedit. If you open the file
from within Resedit and choose the Get Info for ... from the File menu
and then change the type from text to EPSF (case probably important)
and then save, the file should now be seen as an epsf file to Mac
