Expect it to fail in various ways. This release is made available
to those who wish to test and comment on its future development.
SeqApp is being written by Don Gilbert, using the MacApp
extensible Macintosh programming framework from Apple Computer.
You can obtain updates of this release thru anonymous ftp to
ftp.bio.indiana.edu, in folder /molbio/seqapp, as seqapp.hqx.
You may also obtain updates directly thru an internet-connected
Mac with SeqApp or GopherApp, using Gopher to the IUBio archive.
Look for a folder called "IUBio Software+Data/SeqApp, Mac sequence editor".
This release of SeqApp now will work on Mac SE and should work on all
Mac models back to Mac+. It works under Mac systems 6 and 7, though some
features rely on system 7.
