A few corrections:
   the ftp address for PHYLIP is actually evolution.genetics.washington.edu
   though that address may work too.  Directories are as stated.
   There is a generic ANSI C source version (and a somewhat more dated
    Pascal source version), which can be compiled on lots of machines
    including Unix systems, VMS, etc.
   There are executables posted for pre-386 DOS, 386/486/Pentium DOS,
    386/486/Pentium Windows, 680x0 Macintoshes, and PowerMac.

   PAUP will soon be distributed by Sinauer Associates, of Sunderland,
   Massachusetts, in versions that will do distance matrix methods as
   well as parsimony.  Last I heard it was unavailable but that was
   expected to end soon with release of the new version.
