MolScript comes with source code and should therefore compile
on most Unix boxes. The author is Per Kraulis, e-mail
pjk at oyster.csb.ki.se. I think the program is (almost) free.
O is probably overkill if you just want to generate pictures;
it is mainly intended for macromolecular model building
(using X-ray data). The author is Alwyn Jones, e-mail
alwyn at xray.bmc.uu.se. An O license costs US$ 250 for
