I was amazed to hear that you could get PAUP by ftp and was sure David Swofford
would be enraged to hear of this.  However on checking the site:


I find that it contains instead a large and highly useful catalogue
describing Molecular Biology computer programs.  The material on PAUP is a
description of it (written by me, actually, and taken from my PHYLIP
documentation).  So the "PAUP" that may have showed up in a keyword search
wasn't a downloadable program.

PHYLIP has a Web site, by the way, not just ftp access:
