There was question and answer on the above newsgroup about mindtool software 
for chemistry molecular modelling.  This software can be obtained from
various places including anonymous ftp to ftp.bio.indiana.edu, directory

  Julian Tirado-Rives and myself have written a SunView based
molecular display and analysis program called MindTool.  The program
runs on Sun's and displays the 3-D structures of molecules in
wireframe and ball-n-stick format.  Hardcopy output in PostScript
format can be sent to a LaserWriter or file (valid EPS) for inclusion
in documents.  (cf., Blake, J.F.; Jorgensen, W.L. J. Am. Chem. Soc.
1990, 112, 7269.)  One may annotate plots with text, lines, arrows, and
arcs.  A utility program, mugs, may be used on saved PostScript files to
place many pictures on a page.

  A copy of the MindTool program and related libraries can be
transferred from: rani.chem.yale.edu (  Login via
anonymous ftp and cd to "pub/MindTool", get the README file.  The tar
file mindtool.tar.Z should be transferred in binary mode and installed
as in the README file.
