We also are running a VAX (VAX 8600) as one of our front-end machines (access
servers) to our Cray X-MPs.  We do not have PROLOG, however, except on our
Cray X-MP/24 which is currently running the COS operating system.

I spoke with the person here who installs PROLOG/LISP on our machines and he
said there is an expert there in the UK which can probably give you some
guidance.  Unfortunately, we cannot remember which school is at Cantebury,
but the person's name is David Turner, he is located at Cantebury, and he is
very sharp in applicative lanaguages.

By the way, I am a new member of the Human Genome computational effort here and
would be interested in talking with your user about his research (if you can
give out his name and email address).  Thanks.
