If you write to:
Mapmaker Requests, c/o The Lander Lab, Whitehead Institute for Biomedical Research,
9 Cambridge Centre, Cambridge, Massachusetts 02142, USA
you will be sent an application form.
The last copy of the form we have gives the cost as being:
$1.00 license fee
$50.00 distribution media fee ($25.00 for SUN and IBM PC floppy disks)
$5.00 shipping ($20.00 overseas)
The documentation says about the VMS version:
"VAXes have shown a high level of site-specific problems and incompatibilities between different
versions and configurations. A VMS system site manager may need to help you install Mapmaker"
We have had no trouble with the Unix version.
