need PD probe (Tm), oligo pgm

A student in the department needs a program which will calculate
oligo Tms for making probes for sequencing a region which is (1)
highly repetitive and (2) unreachable by Sequinase (tm?).

I have looked at the UH archives, the GenBank FTP archives,
my own unbelieveably motley collection of Mac and PC sequence
software, the GCG programs, the Hugo Martinez ARP package, the IBI PC
and Mac package, David Mount's program, the Caltech pgms from the
MBCRR, and some interesting Soviet software which may become available
publically in the US at some point.

None of these have such a function, alto I'm *sure* I've seen one
somewhere.  Can anyone help?

And no, we don't have the $$$ to subscribe to the GenBank OnLine
stuff, which does include such a function in one of the IG programs
(this student used that function extensively on BIONET, but NIH says
we can get all that on our own machines now, while they cut our
budgets, right? Sigh.). No, we can't buy PC-Gene either.

Thanks very much,
