According to the LINKAGE newsletter distributed by Jung Ott,
there IS a macintosh version of LINKAGE available. You might want
to write to find availability.

I tried porting LIPED a year or so ago. The PC version was impossible
to port, due to some compiler-specific things in Microsoft FORTRAN.
I have a working version of the VAX LIPED, (which uses a different
input file than the PC version).

There are a couple of MacPain karyotype files up on the EMBL server.
