The GCG FOLD program is Zuker's old program. I believe the original
message was about the Sub-optimal RNA folding package M. Zuker, J. A.
Jaeger, and D. H. Turner  (LRNA and CRNA). I believe this is the program
that Don Gilbert ported to the Macintosh and called MulFold. This version
is much better that the GCG FOLD version as multiple sub-optimal foldings
can be reported for any run. Also LRNA and CRNA use the dangle energy
parameters of Turner and Jaeger. I obtained this program from Dr. Zuker.
