My only comment is that compiling entrez/unix requires
Motif x-window libraries, and there is no free Motif for
linux. There is a $200 Motif library for linux (from who
it escapes me at the moment...). It may or may not be
possible to distribute binaries for entrex/linux w/o a fee.
However, whoever has a linux box mostly likely already has
an MSWindows box, so they could use the MSWindows binary
I haven't tried entrez/ncbitools on linux. If I do, I'll
let people know.
